Dubai: As a taxi driver, you can never anticipate who will enter your cab — or what might ensue.
In this certain incident, the surprise left these three drivers beaming from ear to ear.
In the video clip posted on Instagram, Abdul Aziz Baz enters a cab and meets drivers from Pakistan, Bangladesh and India. He then reveals the ultimate gift of a free round-trip to their home country.
The heart-warming initiative was made in collaboration with Etihad Airways.
