People Are Going Crazy Over Emirates ‘Diamond Covered’ Plane



The internet is going crazy after Emirates airline posted a picture of a plane covered in diamonds and crystals.

The Emirates ‘Bling’ 777 – which most took as a reference to the Boeing 777 aircraft – was pictured alongside baggage carts and shuttle bus vehicles, an otherwise everyday travel image aside from the plane’s spectacular embellishment.
A Boeing 777 plane is 63.7 metres or 73.9 metres long, depending on the model – meaning a whole lot of precious gems would be needed to cover it.

Not surprisingly, people were freaking out on Twitter in reaction to United Arab Emirates’ based airline’s post.

Some accused the airline of ‘showing off’, while others were simply concerned about whether the plane would be able to take off.

As it turns out, the post is actually an artwork created by award winning crystal artist Sara Shakeel and posted on her Instagram account.
