Stop what you’re doing right now and be prepared for a cuteness overload, as we introduce Coco; the classy bun-bun who travelled business class from San Francisco to Japan.

She dressed in a bowtie for the occasion and even managed to bag her own seat!

Coco’s owner was flying back to Japan to start her new career.

“I couldn’t leave her in the States, so I took her back with me,”

Although the flight was in late 2018, the story has only just been discovered after being published by sites like Metro and we are so happy it has gone viral.

The adventures of Coco

The hold wasn’t even an option for dear, sweet Coco. Therefore, owner Ogawa registered Coco as an emotional support animal and paid $100 to have her in the cabin in a special case.

When staff informed Ogawa there would be no one sitting in the seat next to her in business class, the adorable little fluffball enjoyed the high life.

“I thought it was super nice of the flight attendants to let her use the unoccupied cubicle next to me, and for bringing her treats throughout the trip,” says Ogawa, adding staff would come by to meet Coco.

“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.”

Coco was a very well behaved passenger. Ogawa said that, although she brought pet sheets in case of accidents, Coco didn’t make a mess.

It’s not the first time Coco has flown business class, so she knew what to expect. “She traveled from Japan to San Francisco when we moved there in 2015,” explained Ogawa.

“This was her second long flight.”

Coco’s other adventures include “going to the Google office occasionally”, where her owner Takako Ogawa used to work, appearing in family portraits and attending BBQs. However, being almost nine, Ogawa is unsure if Coco will be okay to fly again.
