Koala Visits First Class Cabin on Flight to Singapore

One of four koalas heading from Australia to Singapore Monday got a sweet taste of first class before a Qantas Airlines flight departed. Chan, Idalia, Paddle and Pellita were flown from Brisbane to Singapore to spend 6 months at the Singapore Zoo. But before they made the journey in their custom-built containers in the plane’s cargo hold, one of them managed to snag a photo shoot in a first class seat, where it was treated to eucalyptus and hot towels. Australia gave the marsupials to Singapore in a diplomatic move on the 50th anniversary of the nation’s independence. — See more at Today
