Talk about being extra
The Internet recently went nuts when Emirates tweeted a snap which sees one of its planes fully decked out in diamonds and crystals.
Dubbed the ‘Bling 777’, the fancy aircraft is seen shining like the world’s biggest disco ball while parked on an unknown airport’s tarmac.

Unsurprisingly, people couldn’t contain their disbelief, with many questioning the plane’s practicality and flight safety issues.
I think this would end up being a problem. pic.twitter.com/Z20UzHfI7q

Pointless ans gaudy, should focus on refurbishing the seats and providing comfortable seats.

If it hasn’t been obvious by this point, the plane isn’t actually real. It’s an artwork done by award-winning artist Sara Shakeel whose art-style revolves around diamond-studded, everyday objects.
