The truth behind viral photo of diamond studded Emirates plane

Emirates Airlines is one of the most popular and luxurious carriers that people opt for. The business and first class is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Taking things to the next level, a viral photo of a ‘diamond studded’ Emirates plane left many puzzled after it was tweeted by the airlines’ official account.

People were shocked to see the plane embellished with crystals and diamonds. We've heard cases of gold toilets and cars, but this is miles ahead of being crazy rich.

The sparkly aircraft in the viral image was shown parked at the terminal of an airport along with the luggage trucks. Many people were left wondering whether this was the UAE-based airlines latest plane. However, many also speculated that the image was fake.


Before you come to any conclusions, we'd like to let you know that the image is a creation. The image shared by the airlines is a crystal creation of artist Sara Shakeel. As the caption of the picture itself clarified, the plane is not really a diamond-studded one.

According to Khaleej Times, Sara Shakeel is a crystal artist with a strong Instagram following of over 4.8 lakhs. On Tuesday, she shared her artwork of the plane on Instagram. This caught the eye of the airlines, who reposted the image on their Twitter handle.

However, Twitter was lost for words, wondering if this could really be true. So much wealth?
