In a heartwarming gesture, Emirates has announced in a series of tweets that it will fly down the star of a viral video featuring an autistic boy who loves Emirates.
The Dubai-based carrier posted an edited video of Calum, a 10-year-old autistic boy from Belfast, UK, where he gives a safety demonstration as the crew on Emirates flights.
"I really want to become a cabin crew, so please can I come to the training centre?", Calum asks, before proceeding to do an airplane safety demonstration.
Emirates confirmed in a later tweet that they liked the safety demo so much that they would be flying the boy down to Dubai to meet some of their cabin crew in person.

This move is part of Emirates' new #EmiratesLoveStory initiative to reach out to fans of the airline. A passenger had earlier proposed to his girlfriend on Valentine's day aboard an Emirates A380 bound for Johannesburg, South Africa.
