Have you ever saw an airplane dazzled with diamonds? This Emirate plane will surely make you feel like a royalty even for just a few hours.
Emirates is Dubai’s flagship airline, known for going an extra mile and know how to make heads turn. That’s exactly what this Emirate’s sparkling plane does, with sunglasses on. But the thing is, the photo is real but the diamonds that made the plane dazzle is actually just on the photo. LOL!
The photo shows the Emirates ‘Bling’ 777, an aircraft covered head to toe with diamonds. The idea started from a former dentist, now a crystal artist named Sara Shakeel. The photo has received over 400,000 likes on the Emirates Instagram handle.
She carefully adorned the plane with crystals, using various colors and sizes that complement with the aircraft’s colors. The Emirates airline seem liked the image so much that the airline even asked for permission from Shakeel to repost it and upgraded her flight from Pakistan to Milan.
She creates her artwork by doctoring pictures, superimposing images of crystals, diamonds, and sparkly dust on everything from coffee cups to subway trains and even cats’ paws.
Netizens felt that the plane was real, even asking how they can book a ticket on that Emirate aircraft. One social media user even commented, ‘Booked an Emirates flight this morning. Full of expectations now.’
The Emirates replied with a smiling emoji: ‘Hi [passenger], we look forward to welcoming you on board soon’.
Some even said that it could be dangerous if it flies, some say that it could attract lightning, and other said that it could blind someone. Some netizens also commend her with her amazing artwork.
