The Emirates Airlines posted a picture of Bling 777 and the Internet went crazy as to whether the plane was a hoax or a misspelt Boeing 777. The image took the Internet off-guard after an Instagram user posted a picture of the Bling 777 in a blingy, diamond-studded aeroplane, almost beyond reality after which the post was followed suit by the Emirates Airlines themselves.

However, the jazzed-up aircraft all decked in diamond-studded crystals set against the backdrop of the glittering sunset, didn't seem to convince everyone and people went about wondering as to whether this aircraft was a result of fine computer visuals or a result of extravagant intelligence. But after official Emirates Airline Twitter handle themselves posted on their account of their new Bling 777, users confirmed that it was indeed a diamond-studded blingy aircraft!


“Presenting the Emirates ‘Bling’ 777. Image created by Sara Shakeel,” says the tweet posted by the airlines confirming that the plane is simply a picture. According to Khaleej Times, Sara Shakeel is a crystal from Pakistan with a knack for blingy artworks. 

Shakeel’s artwork was so well-liked that even the Emirates airline seek a permission from her asking if they could repost a picture of this Bling 777 in their account. Shakeel was a former dentist who was way from Milan and Pakistan where she decided to give Emirates an upgrade. She posted "We just posted an art piece made by crystal artist Sara Shakeel," an Emirates spokesperson told Gulf News. "I can confirm it's not real".

With the UAE’S penchant for the finest and most extravagant things in life, this fine crystal artwork did fit in just right! Maybe we will see the Bling 777 in years to come.
