On Au­gust 4, an Emi­rates plane com­ing from the In­dian state of Ker­ala caught fire and crash-landed in the Dubai In­ter­na­tional Air­port, prompt­ing the hash­tag #Emi­rates to the top of the trend­ing hash­tags world­wide. All 300 pas­sen­gers on board were suc­cess­fully evac­u­ated from the air­craft fol­low­ing the in­ci­dent, yet a fire­fighter died on duty while at­tempt­ing to tackle the fire. Flights in the Dubai air­port were sus­pended for sev­eral hours in the af­ter­math of the crash.
