Passengers at Dubai International Airport were unexpectedly serenaded by a group of dancers disguised as flight attendants at the weekend, as part of a flash mob organised by the airport.
Crowds gathered as dancers dressed in flight attendant and airport staff costume and children spontaneously burst into a synchronised dance in the Duty Free shopping areas – stopping passing travellers and airline pilots in their tracks.
Video footage of the dance-off – which was posted on YouTube at the weekend – has so far attracted almost 100,000 hits.
Dubai airport organised the event to promote the new DXB Connect card, a pre-paid card aimed at airport passengers.
It is not the only airport in the Middle East to have put on a flash mob this year.
