:P
very funny.

It's probably some sort of bird of prey, like a hawk or a falcon. Falconry is popular in the Gulf, so it;s probably that.

The logo certainly doesn't look anything like a real bird ;
How much A is there is Airliners Net ? 0 or nothing ?

That's true Codeshare, falconry is indeed popular in this region. However I've seen Crane birds on their website. Could it be a Crane bird??
