An ad posted by Emirates Airlines on Twitter has prompted many mixed reactions as the airline announced a new service of holding weddings in the air.
We're taking love to new heights! Emirates is pleased to launch a special Wedding Service for those who want to tie the knot at 40,000 feet.— Emirates Airline (@emirates) March 31, 2021
Plan your perfect day on our @Airbus A380, now available on select routes.
The announcement that included the hashtag #FlyEmiratesFlyBetter invited couples who are planning their weddings to get married aboard its Airbus A380, promising "a perfect" wedding.

We can see that 1/4/2021 🧐😂
We are still waiting for ur chauffeur-less drones, triple decker n see thro- lounge 😔
But still the best airlines without all of these ❤️❤️
However, as the announcement was made late on the 31st of March, many social media users assumed it was an April fools' post by the airline carrier, expressing how "happy" they were "for not falling into the trap."
A wedding chapel 💒 is one of the use for A380 in the future. Actually can’t think of the other use... https://t.co/WkC3DOCoPR— Tomasz Śniedziewski (@TSniedziewski) April 1, 2021
Meanwhile, other commentators praised the idea saying that it can be a great new way of holding weddings in the air, especially as the world emerges from a travel-less year due to the pandemic.
So far, no official statements by Emirates Airlines have stated whether or not the ad is actually a joke for April fools' or an actual new service provided by them.
