Unexpected Air France Flight Announcement Informs Passengers About Cruel Monkey Shipments

Posted by 2 years ago | Permalink | Comments (75)

Untitled-1In France, we must reject all suffering. Please, ask Air France to stop transporting primates to laboratories!” That was the in-flight announcement heard loudly and clearly by Air France passengers this morning as they boarded a flight from Paris to Marseille. Just before takeoff, a PETA France supporter pulled out a poster with an image of a monkey who was tortured inside a laboratory to alert passengers to the fact that Air France is the last major airline in the world that still delivers monkeys to laboratories in the US and elsewhere, where they are caged, cut into, poisoned and killed in cruel, archaic experiments. Many of the thousands of monkeys shipped by Air France from Asia and Africa were first torn away from their homes and families in the wild. Others are bred on squalid monkey factory farms. These sensitive and intelligent animals are crammed into small wooden crates and transported inside dark cargo holds for nearly 30 hours, often on passenger flights just below unsuspecting customers. When the monkeys reach their final destinations, they are imprisoned in tiny cages and tormented in painful, terrifying – and often deadly – experiments. Air France PETA

People in France and all over the world have been speaking out against these inexcusable primate shipments. As one PETA France member put it:

“Air France’s bloody trade in monkeys is a stain on our nation’s reputation in the eyes of the rest of the world”.

Please add your voice to our campaign to get Air France to stop! Take action here.

    Please stop cruel transportation of monkeys.

    We love them and do not want them to suffer.

    Stop carrying them to danger and death, please.

    This is most definitely animal cruelty.

  • Karl Walton commented on January 21, 2015 at 4:51 pm

    This is So Wrong. You don’t have to think about it.

  • Jessica Wallen commented on January 21, 2015 at 5:02 pm

    Please stop transporting primates to labratorys, this contribution to animal cruelty is just as bad as the ‘scientists’ who bring so much harm upon these, innocent monkeys that have so much human emotion!!

  • Julie Eagleton commented on January 21, 2015 at 5:03 pm

    Please stop this barbaric practice, Air France.

  • Marie Studstrup commented on January 21, 2015 at 5:08 pm

    Please stop supporting torture and abuse to these monkeys. They are as intelligent and compassionate as us humans. The only big difference is that they can’t speak the word “NO”…!

  • Dave thorley commented on January 21, 2015 at 5:08 pm

    Abhorrent practice – Air France should be ashamed of its actions- the fact that no other major airlines are now transporting these animals should really give the airline owners a subtle hint that e fee paying public does not wish this terrible practice to continue – Wake up Air France!

  • Marie Studstrup commented on January 21, 2015 at 5:09 pm

    Enough is enough!! Stop the cruelty.

  • Rebecca Rigg commented on January 21, 2015 at 5:12 pm

    This has to stop. Please

  • P Lynch commented on January 21, 2015 at 5:12 pm

    I am shocked and dismayed to learn that Air France transports monkeys to research laboratories and I am writing to ask Air France to stop this cruel trade now. It is unacceptable that these sensitive animals, ripped from their families and homes, are then subjected to the stress of being packed into small crates and shipped as cargo on your airline to end up in laboratories where they will suffer in experiments.

    The trapping of wild monkeys is extremely cruel and causes great suffering. These highly intelligent and sensitive animals are then packed in small crates and travel as cargo on extremely long journeys. They then suffer painful and cruel experiments in captivity. This is all totally unacceptable.

    I urge you to join the increasing number of airlines that have made the decision to stop their involvement in this cruelty.

    I hope that you will be moved by the public outcry against experimentation on primates and your part in this, which will no doubt have an impact upon Air France’s international reputation. I urge Air France to join the growing number of airlines who refuse to transport primates for research. I cannot condone animal cruelty in any form so will not be flying Air France whilst they continue to support this trade.

  • Veronica Potts commented on January 21, 2015 at 5:14 pm

    Every time I hear that Air France is still transporting live primates for experimentation, it sickens me. Is there anything Air France would not do for money? Doesn’t your reputation mean anything to you. Please stop this transport at once and forever. Thank you. Veronica Potts

  • Kevin Lawlor commented on January 21, 2015 at 5:23 pm

    Please stop, suffering must stop. You are the last airline doing this and should be ashamed.

  • Joyce Felse commented on January 21, 2015 at 5:24 pm

    This airline is staining the character of the French by transporting monkeys to research labs. If no monkeys were made available then the testing would have to stop.

  • Hayley Ironside commented on January 21, 2015 at 5:28 pm

    Monkeys are not yours to take

  • Paul martin commented on January 21, 2015 at 5:28 pm

  • elena lewis commented on January 21, 2015 at 5:34 pm

    Air France
    You are the only ones transporting monkeys to labs where they will spend their lives in tiny cages and forced to endure painful experiments. Why? The greed of your company shines thru…
    You can turn your image around. It’s not too late..do the right thing or you will continue to find your company boycotted and you will continue to receive letters such as this…
    It saddens me that it takes a boycott and petition of your airline for you to chose to do the right thing. None the less..we are a forgiving nation..do the right thing now before anymore primates are needlessly harmed. For now..I say shame on you Air France..Shame on YOU.

  • Moreno Pedrinzani commented on January 21, 2015 at 5:40 pm

    Please stop it now, it is too sad and horrible.

  • Allison McQuade commented on January 21, 2015 at 6:19 pm

    I have used Air France in the past but will no longer consider them until they stop the transportation of healthy, innocent, and defenseless monkeys and other animals!

  • Audrey Hudson commented on January 21, 2015 at 6:20 pm

    As long as you transport primates to their deaths, I will not fly Air France and will urge my friends and family to avoid your airline as well. Please do the right thing.

    This is disgusting! Stop this now.

  • Kristeh commented on January 21, 2015 at 6:21 pm

    What you support and do is not only cruel and inhumane but disrespectful towards all beings on this beautiful earth. You should be ashamed of yourselves for the fact that you allow torture for these other sentient beings who have no voice. Imagine if you were in their position and forced into a life of cruelty and suffering. How awful can you be to let something like this happen.

  • caroline commented on January 21, 2015 at 6:23 pm

    Despicable airline, stop this cruelty now!!!

  • Dupain Charlotte commented on January 21, 2015 at 6:24 pm

  • Diane Keane commented on January 21, 2015 at 6:24 pm

    Please put an end to this barbaric practice now. It serves no purpose and is unspeakably cruel.

  • Ros jones commented on January 21, 2015 at 6:25 pm

    Stop! I will never fly air France whilst they still do this!

  • Helen Davies commented on January 21, 2015 at 6:26 pm

    It is time Air France woke up and realised this is not acceptable in a decent society!

  • francesco pulici commented on January 21, 2015 at 6:27 pm

    Please stop trading monkeys!
    It’s cruel and unfair!
    Thank you

  • Lydia de Mario commented on January 21, 2015 at 6:29 pm

    Air France you suck! Stop the cruelty and do the thing!

  • Liz Batey commented on January 21, 2015 at 6:31 pm

    please stop this cruel trade, wont use Air France until it stops, will tell everyone not to use Air France whilst they still do this cruel trade

  • Wendy Thory commented on January 21, 2015 at 6:32 pm

    Please stop transporting monkeys to suffer and die, as the last airline to support this cruelty you and you alone are keeping this evil trade going!!!
    STOP!!

  • Hannah Bradley commented on January 21, 2015 at 6:35 pm

    Air France need to stop supporting and helping this terrible act. If other airline companies can realise that taking part in such barbaric torture then why can’t you. You are taking animals to a life of pain and suffering, there is never a reasonable explanation for this. There are people that are willing to speak up for the creatures that don’t have a voice. Stop delivering animals to a torture cell. Join the other companies that believe that it is wrong.

  • Angela Gould commented on January 21, 2015 at 6:36 pm

    Yes – to my shame I travelled with Fly B in September last year, which I learned too late is a part of Air France is it not?
    …….from Birmingham to Lyon.

    I will not take a Fly B flight again until this is sorted.

  • christina taylor commented on January 21, 2015 at 6:36 pm

    Please stop shipping these poor animals, its cruel and we dont want it.

  • Gustavo Murcia commented on January 21, 2015 at 6:38 pm

    Air France, stop shipping monkeys for testing. Fuckers

  • Katherine Redmond commented on January 21, 2015 at 6:41 pm

    Primates are sentient creatures who are more like humans than any other mammals. This is all the more reason for them NOT to be tortured like this. The fact that Air France is involved in aiding and abetting in this atrocity shocks me and I will certainly not be flying with them until such time as they are prepared to publically distance themselves from this deeply misguided path. Shame on them!

  • Philippa Kingsley commented on January 21, 2015 at 6:42 pm

    It’s time to do the right thing and stop shipping scared and frightened monkeys to their death. It’s an abomination. Stop the greed and find compassion in your hearts.

  • Rachael firth commented on January 21, 2015 at 6:55 pm

    Please stop this! It is wrong!!!!

  • liah ali commented on January 21, 2015 at 6:55 pm

    I haven’t used air france since i heard they support this crap 🙂
