Check out Emirates’ diamond A380 lounge

First it was the diamond-encrusted plane, and now Emirates’ onboard lounge for the A380 has got the sparkly treatment – if you were to believe the airline’s latest social media activity.

Following the original mock-up of the Boeing 777 Emirates airliner (also known as the Bling 777) completely covered in diamonds, the airline has now tweeted a new mock-up, showing a blinged out business and first class lounge and bar.

Responses from social media users have ranged from excitement, to envy, and in the case of some users, enquiries as to which route the bar is available on. (Spoiler alert, it’s Photoshopped, so you won’t be finding this on flights any time soon).

Meanwhile, the airline has just announced that it will be getting in on the Oktoberfest celebrations, having revealed a dedicated menu across economy, business and first class cabins on routes to Germany this September and October. You’ll find pretzels, Sauerkraut, Leberkäse, Spätzle and even German hops served in steins (depending on what class you’re in).
