It’s April Fool’s Day And UAE Companies Pranked The Public

    It’s 1 April and companies in the UAE have taken full advantage of the day to fool their customers. If you’ve hovered around social media anytime during the day, you might have seen these and jumped in joy (at least for a brief moment).

    Here’s how UAE’s top three brands engaged users with their timely pranks.

    1. Emirates

    National carrier Emirates tweeted that passengers can fly on chauffeur-less drones in Dubai from April 2020. And staying true to their luxury status, the brand also added that each drone features two fully-enclosed First Class private suites.

    And a few customers also realized it was a prank. Take a look at the tweets:

    2. Deliveroo

    Popular food delivery app announced a ban on pizza curst after anti-crust feedback from customers. They further added that the crust cut will begin from 1 April on their app. Clearly, this was only a prank and users understood it too.

    3. Namshi

    Online shopping giant Namshi, announced a faster delivery option- ‘The Falcon Express’. The new carrier will deliver goods three hours of placing an order on 1 April 2019. The brand later carried a clarification on their website today. The message read – ‘Although Habibi and friends won’t be joining our delivery team, you can still get your parcel quickly thanks to our super speedy crew. Same great service, less feathers!’
