On Sunday, the Dubai-based airline tweeted an incredibly well-designed photo of a so-called driverless drone. Along with two photos, Emirates assured people that they'd be able to commute in those drones starting April 2020. The "drones" can supposedly take passengers from Dubai International Airport to any location in the Emirati city.
"Our new drone airport transfer service will be offered to all Emirates Skywards Platinum members," the airline's caption read.
The carrier still hasn't confirmed the announcement to be an April Fool's joke, but it's clear as day.
Did people fall for it?
Some fell pretty hard
Others started praising Emirates for its amazing vision
Some realized the joke, an hour after believing it
Sarcasm and humor surfaced
Some just couldn't tell whether Emirates is fooling people or not
Then there were those who knew exactly what was going on
Questions were raised: "Celebrating April 1 in advance?"
"I'm not falling for it this year!"
In 2017, Emirates unveiled plans for what they described as the "world's largest commercial aircraft" in posts shared on their social media pages one day before April Fools' Day.
Named the Triple-Decker APR001, many quickly made the link, calling the airlines out. Soon enough, Emirates gave in and announced that it was all one big prank. It was a good one indeed.
