Numerous reports out of terminal six at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport indicate that a cat named Simon has indeed placed his seat back and tray table in their full, upright and locked position, as requested by flight attendants.

“It was touch and go there for a while,” says Lenny Davis, who has the aisle seat next to Simon. He corresponded with The Fluffington Post via email, as the plane was still on the tarmac at press time. “He couldn’t find the tray table lever, his seat belt wouldn’t buckle. But he figured it all out. We should finally be ready for takeoff.”
