Airline Flybe, based in Exeter, has got into the April Fools Day spirit.
In a quirky video they discuss a fictitious service that will be moving bees to parts of the country where they are lacking in number.
It's fair to say that we're glad this was a joke. It wouldn't be great to be sat next to buzzing bees on a 4 hour flight.

Flybe is expected to make an announcement at Newquay Airport today about more flights from the region.
It's after a controversial £5 passenger tax was scrappedat the airport last week. Cornwall Council says the new agreement will benefit the county's travellers.
Exeter Airport says passenger numbers are back to pre-recession levels.
Latest monthly figures show continued growth with 800,000 passengers in a 12 month period for the first time since 2009.
The increase of both inbound and outbound passengers has been largely driven by the return of Flybe's popular sun routes, their additional domestic services and our Thomson-based aircraft with flights to 15 popular holiday destinations.
The Managing Director says the following changes have also helped
- Flybe's London City route which started nine months ago
- Extra services to Manchester with Flybe
- The return of the Newcastle service
- The latest route to Deauville Normandy, which started in June
The company predicts that, with the extension of the Flybe summer season for the Alicante, Malaga and Palma Mallorca flights, the rise in passengers through Exeter will continue.
