Wouldn't you love to fly in the skies with diamonds this Holiday season? Well, judging by this picture, it appears your fantasy may become possible. And its all due to this Emirates Boeing 777 aircraft which appeared to receive a pretty dazzling makeover in time for the festive season!

A bling worthy experience. The airline took to Twitter to unveil the plane's new look, which saw every square inch of its livery covered in diamonds, making for a pretty spectacular sparkling effect.
Unsurprisingly, it sent aviation fans into meltdown, with the image garnering thousands of likes and retweets. I personally found it pretty spectacular. The stuff made of dreams.

In no time at all, Twitter users began speculating on everything from the cost of the diamond encrusted plane to the routes it would be flying so people could look out for it in the skies.

But how would it take off. It must literally be a very weighty and expensive flight. Meanwhile sceptics questioned whether the plane would be able to take-off with the additional weight of the diamonds.

And the critics were right to be doubtful, as the diamond-encrusted plane isn't real, but rather the result of nifty photo editing skills! Superbly and realistically done.
 
The airline cleared up the confusion, shattering hopes in the process. Emirates highlighted that the image had been 'created' by artist Sara Shakeel in the image's accompanying caption, writing "Presenting the Emirates ‘Bling’ 777.

A true artistic talent. Sara, a former dentist turned 'crystal artist', regularly edits images to give them a bedazzled new look, posting the results on her Instagram account.

The Emirates plane was just another fun project on her list, ahead of a trip to Milan where she was going to be flying with the airline.

She posted her artwork on Instagram, where it caught the company's attention.
In fact, they reportedly gave her an upgrade on her flight after being so impressed by the eye-catching image.

All in all it was fun for the social media fans, and great for the airline and the talented crystal artist, Sara Shakeel.
