Hong Kong Airlines agreed to stop flying live dolphins in dangerous and cruel conditions after over 6500 change.org members signed a petition directed at the company. The airline came under fire after they admitted flying 5 dolphins in "living coffins" from Osaka to Hanoi in January. On February 29th, 2012, Hong Kong Airlines released a statement saying, "Since it is believed that transportation of this nature can result in endangering wildlife elsewhere, Hong Kong Airlines will immediately ban shipments of this kind."

On February 22, 2012, The China Daily News reported that Hong Kong Airlines is profiting from animal cruelty by striking a HK$850,000 deal to fly live dolphins from Japan to Vietnam. Specifically, five Taiji dolphins were transported via cargo flight in "flying coffins" on January 16, 2012. They spent at least 7 hours in this cruel confinement. Dolphins are neither cargo, nor commerce, nor entertainment. Hong Kong Airlines, stop profiting off of animal cruelty!  For more details, please read the article published by Simon Parry in The China Daily News at:  http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/hkedition/2012-02/22/content_14662541.htm

      it is time to stop murdering Dolphins and selling their family members to Sea Worlds, dolphin tanks so those who are making money off dolphins can continue in their hidious lie to children and their families of the thrill of seeing dolphins jumping for their food in small prison bath tubs.

      Boycott HK Airlines -> save a dolphin. Make a statement for all parties supporting in one way or another the pointless dolphin cull in Taiji. Suffocate the dolphin industry!
