Following up on our previous article about the #EmiratesPromotion on Instagram, Apparently its a fake, the users EmiratesDubai and EmiratesDubai1 on Instgram were removed only 24 hours from revealing the proomotion, which was brought to our attention by Noora Al Qassimi on Twitter:
@interactiveme I just checked and emiratesdubai on instagram is gone so it probably wasn’t them

And although Emirates still haven’t got back to me (and I’m pretty sure they won’t) but we’re fairly certain that the campaign was a hoax, because this happened before on Instagram with other airlines as mentioned by lost dot on Twitter:
