The image shared by the airlines is a crystal creation of artist Sara Shakeel. With over 4 lakh followers, her Instagram account is filled with images pepped up with crystals and diamonds.
It turns out that a couple of days back, Shakheel posted an edited picture of the aircraft and the airlines liked it so much that they not only reposted the picture but also upgraded her flight from Pakistan to Milan, stated a Khaleej Times report. However, the picture, which has over 3 thousand likes, created quite a buzz on social media. Here are some of the many reactions to the ‘diamond-studded’ aircraft:
