VIDEO: Emirates cabin crew stage race down aisles of aircraft
It's not long until the Dubai Fitness Challenge kicks off, and prominent organisations are encouraging people to take a pledge to do 30 minutes of exercise for 30 days, starting on October 20.
Emirates is the latest company to show support, posting a video of their cabin crew holding a running race down the aisles of a plane. Check out the video below.

Dubai Police put out a video to drum up support for the challenge.
The RTA also showed support, with a video of people in the company doing pull ups on hand rails of a bus, and running through carriages on the metro.
This comes after His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council of the Dubai Government and Dubai Sports Council, launched the challenge to motivate residents to get fit.
Sheikh Hamdan commented: “Dubai aims to set an example for cities around the world in encouraging citizens to give high importance to physical activity and sports. We are very keen to spread a culture of fitness since we strongly believe that making physical activity and sports a part of their daily routines will help people significantly improve the quality of their lives.
“The Dubai Fitness Challenge has been designed to motivate people to pursue an active and energetic lifestyle. This complements other initiatives we are pursuing to transform Dubai itself into the world’s happiest city by providing a positive social environment and the conditions for an enriching lifestyle.”
