Dog Gets Flown Business Class From Sydney To Italy

Dog Gets Flown Business Class From Sydney To Italy

Many people can only dream of one day sitting in a Business Class seat on an international flight.

While these dreamers will save up their hard earned cash for a trip of a lifetime one day, a goddamn dog has been generously upgraded during a flight from Sydney to Italy.

The dog, named Lewis, was adopted from Greyt Greys Rescue in Melbourne, which is a small volunteer run charity that rescues, fosters, and adopts ex-racing Greyhounds to loving families in Victoria.

Lewis' new owner then revealed she was moving to Italy.


She, like those Business Class dreamers we mentioned before, had save her pennies to afford a comfortable plane ticket to the European hotspot.

Lewis was meant to go in the cargo hold (like most dogs that aren't approved support animals), however when authorities at Singapore Airlines noticed how empty the flight was, they bumped him up to Business.

Greyt Greys Rescue wrote on Facebook: "Lewis made himself at home and was fine for the flights! No crying and no accidents.


"The flight crew said he was the best dog they've EVER had including fully trained service dogs. Lewis celebrated his birthday on the plane and was totally spoiled by the staff."

Photos uploaded to the charity's Facebook page show the dog was given adorable muffin and even a 'Happy Birthday' banner.

People have praised Singapore Airlines for offering an older dog some much-needed comfort.

One user wrote: "Thank you Singapore Airlines for showing such warmth towards this sweet boy and his mum! I too have been looking into moving overseas with my Greyhound and would even be happy to pay extra if it meant I was able to fly with my girl in the cabin."


Another added: "So hilarious that they let him fly business class! What an amazing story! Such a big adventure for him!"

A third said: "Wow ! How impressive ! Lucky dog getting to fly business class in the cabin. Nice birthday present. Wish Harrington & I could do that."

It won't be long now for Aussies to be able to hop back on a plane once again now that the federal government has outlined when international borders will reopen.

Once a state or territory reaches 80 per cent of its population over 16 fully vaccinated then residents will be permitted to head overseas.


Tourists coming in and returning Aussies could be allowed to do quarantine at home for seven days instead of two weeks inside a hotel.
