The airline claimed to be launching private drones in DXB...and we wish it was true
A round of applause for Emirates Airline please, for almost tricking us into thinking they really were launching a fleet of chauffeur-less drones that would whisk passengers between any location in Dubai to the carrier’s hub at DXB.
Fly on our chauffeur-less drones between any location in Dubai and @DXB, from April 2020. Each drone features two fully-enclosed First Class private suites. Our new drone airport transfer service will be offered to all Emirates Skywards Platinum members. #FlyEmiratesFlyBetterpic.twitter.com/s35dNg89jz
But don't be fooled - it's all a crafty prank for April Fools' Day - which is today, FYI.
In a Tweet, the airline insisted that starting in April 2020, each drone will feature two fully-enclosed First Class private suites. The statement added: "Our new drone airport transfer service will be offered to all Emirates Skywards Platinum members. #FlyEmiratesFlyBetter".
