A mynah bird has become an internet for flying 10,864 kilometers from Singapore to the UK on a business class flight.

The bird actually managed to reach London’s Heathrow airport after taking a 12-hour business class Singapore Airlines flight that usually costs $5,969 (Rs 4.24 lakhs.), reported The Independent.

Travel class on an airplane is usually split into a two, three or four class model service. U.S. domestic flights usually have two classes: economy class and a domestic first class partitioned into cabins. International flights may have up to four classes: economy class; premium economy; business class or club class; and first class.

Most air travel starts and ends at a commercial airport. The typical procedure is check-in; border control; airport security baggage and passenger check before entering the gate; boarding; flying; and pick-up of luggage and – limited to international flights – another border control at the host country’s border.

For longer journeys, air travel may consist of several flights with a layover in between. The number of layovers often depends on the number of hub airports the journey is routed through.

Airlines rely either on the point-to-point model or the spoke-and-hub model to operate flights in between airports. The point-to-point model, often used by low-cost carriers such as Southwest,[3] relies on scheduling flights directly between destination airports. The spoke-and-hub model, used by carriers such as American[4] and Delta,[5] relies on scheduling flights to and from hub airports. The hub-and-spoke model allows airlines to connect more destinations and provide more frequent routes, while the point-to-point system allows airlines to avoid layovers and have more cost effective operations.[6]
