    Dubai’s Emirates Airline is among a number of Gulf carriers which has deemed a new advert by the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) activist group as too graphic to appear in their in-flight magazines, Arabian Business has learned.

    The US-based international animal rights organisation created a new advert featuring a picture of Australian sheep being shipped to the Middle East with the strapline ‘AND YOU THOUGHT ECONOMY CLASS WAS CRAMPED!’

    I am not surprised that it was rejected! Not too flattering for the airline to have those ads in their in-flight magazine!

    To show the sheep suffering while being shipped to the Mideast could be viewed as a criticism of the Middle East, or at least the countries where the sheep are going. The analogy with flying coach isn't flattering to an airline either.

    In Italy we have a say, that translated sounds more or less like this:"Don't talk of ropes to the family of the hanged"
