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.

“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".
