Bunny in a bow tie is living her best life as she flies first class with owner

An emotional support rabbit has attracted plenty of attention after living the life of luxury in first class on an 11-hour United Airlines flight from San Fransisco to Japan.

Coco the bunny is living her best life and got to experience what most of us can only dream of, thanks to her owner Takako Ogawa.

And she did it all while wearing the cutest little bow tie.

The eight-year-old rabbit had her own seat and cushion on the plane to snuggle up on and the cabin crew were so smitten with the fluffy little pet that they even swapped duties so they could take it in turns to go and meet her.

Coco had a whole seat to herself

This wasn’t Coco’s first flight either, having travelled from Japan to California three years previously, when her owner first moved.

Back then, Takako, 32, had to keep her in the hold while travelling, but now she worried she was too old to be safe back there.

So she decided to register the bunny as an emotional support animal.

The CEO paid $100 (around £76) to get her pet this status and then she was allowed to come into the cabin with her in a carry case.

Flight attendants loved her

However, when the plane took off, Takako discovered the seat next to her was unoccupied and the flight attendants gave her permission to let Coco loose.

She did so, but was a little concerned about the toilet situation and whether she would start hopping off around the rest of the plane.

But in the end, there was nothing to worry about, as Coco was good as gold.

Speaking about the experience, Coco’s owner said: “This is one of my favourite flights I’ve ever had. There’s nothing like being able to take your bunny on the plane.

“Coco seemed very happy in the cabin. She was very curious and was hopping around.

“I was nervous [she might try to explore the plane]. She did hop around, explore the pillows, but only in her own cubicle.

“She’s usually very good. She’s very calm being surrounded by people and in a different environment, so she took it really well.”

“She didn’t get a lot of attention from other passengers because it was the business class so you don’t really see a lot of people.”

Takako added: “When I got my own ice cream sundae, the flight attendant looked over and asked if the rabbit wanted anything.

“I wasn’t sure what the rabbit could have, but she got some of the toppings like almonds and nuts and they put it on a very small plate for her.

“It was adorable. She did enjoy them. She was very happy.”
