Emirates sent the internet into a spin this week by posting a picture of their new ‘Bling 777’ sparkling diamond encrusted aircraft on their social media pages.

Cries of “Is this real? This needs to be real” filled their comments sections. So, will a glittering Emirates aircraft be twinkling through the skies just in time for Christmas?

We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but no it’s not real. It’s just some really beautiful and imaginative Photoshop work by Instagram user @SaraShakeel.

Many had lofty dreams of the livery being genuine, but realists and aviation enthusiasts asked: “How would the plane be able to fly with the added weight of diamonds?”

“Unfortunately not possible technically. The plane will have added extra weight and some serious safety issues then.”

When posting a second image of the diamond encrusted Emirates plane, Sara prefaced it with a cheeky caption.

“So my plane has been on the news lately, confirming whether it’s real or not, so before I took off I took another picture just to let you guys know it’s real.”

“I truly and honestly made the diamond plane for the love of the trip and excitement. Never in a million years did I know it’d end up on the news/tv/ trending on Twitter all over the place! So thank you a million times,” she said.
