With travel bans affecting a lot of people from the region, it's no surprise that airlines like Emirates have reduced the number of flights they have going to the US. So many tourism board across the United States might want to take a leaf out of Discover Los Angeles' book. The group carried out this heart-warming move on Saturday, greeting visitors from the GCC on airlines including Etihad Airways, Emirates and Qatar Airways arriving at LAX with human "Welcome" signs.
Making the stunt extra special, hundreds of Angelenos, including celebrities, held up cards to spell out just how happy they were to have people from anywhere and everywhere in the world spend time in California. The signs spelled the word out in Arabic, English, Chinese and Spanish.
It meant that even from the air, those jetting into the City of Angels already had that warm fuzzy feeling in their tummy.
