Social media users have been fooled by a picture of an Emirates plane apparently covered in diamonds.

The photo is actually a doctored image created by artist Sara Shakeel and posted on Instagram while she was waiting for a flight.

Ms Shakeel is known for posting doctored images of items covered in diamonds, but the official Emirates Twitter account, which republished the image, isn’t.

It called the plane the ‘Bling 777’ and credited the image to Ms Shakeel, but some Twitter users still believed the plane was real.

“Pointless and gaudy, should focus on refurbishing the seats and providing comfortable seats,” one user said.
