Emirates reveals diamond-encrusted plane

Here in Dubai we do like a bit of bling  – but this diamond-encrusted Emirates jet is taking things to the next level.

The spectacular mock-up image was created by crystal artist Sara Shakeel and shared by the airline last night.

It shows a glittering Emirates plane covered in bling parked on the runway under a beautiful starry sky, which we reckon is way more than first class.

Flyers were quick to comment on the airline's Facebook page praising the "Christmassy" image.

One said "ooh I want to fly in that plane", while another added: "Now that's the only way to travel."

While the crystal plane might not be real, Emirates does have a load of cool things on the inside of its jets.

Earlier this year the airline revealed its amazing first class suites, which boast floor-to-ceiling sliding doors and up to 40 square feet of space.

There is even enough room for passengers to change in complete privacy after the bed has been made.

Passengers can easily communicate with the cabin crew, or request for room service using the video call function.

The suites also come with a service window where customers can be served drinks and canapes undisturbed.

Now that's the way to travel in style.
