Twitter went crazy after airline Emirates shared a photo of what appeared to be a diamond-studded plane sitting on the tarmac.


The tweet went viral after folks couldn’t discern whether or not the plane was actually coated with diamonds.

The image, created by artist Sara Shakeel, depicts the ever-so-subtle glitter of a diamond studded Boeing 777 nicknamed the ‘Bling 777’ by Emirates. The artist shared the image on her Instagram account, which has almost half a million followers, which was then picked up and tweeted by the airline.

In fact, Emirates enjoyed the photo so much, they upgraded Shakeel’s flight from Pakistan to Milan.
