Four American Bald Eagles flew all the way from Minnesota to Miami Saturday - tourist class, in the smoking section, courtesy Eastern Airlines.

The eagles, injured by hunters' traps, are to be cared for at a Florida wildlife refuge. Each bird, in a cage, had a seat to itself. It is not known if they were offered complimentary soft drinks.
