Jennifer Aniston Takes Economy for a Spin on Emirates’ A380

Almost one year ago to the day, Emirates released a new ad campaign featuring Jennifer Aniston. In the 60-second spot, Jen wakes up from a bad dream — in which she’s clearly flying a US-based carrier — only to find herself back in her super-posh first-class suite. She then wanders off to the business-class bar and makes it clear that she doesn’t want the flight to end.

Today, the airline published a brand new ad, once again with Jen in the spotlight. This time, she returns from her in-flight shower to find a kid, Cooper, playing with an A380 model in her suite. Coop wants to be a pilot when he grows up, but only if he can fly the A380. He then proceeds to take Jen on a tour through the first class cabin, followed by business and finally downstairs to regular old coach, where she gets to meet his family and swap places with Coop’s mom (who we see having a fantastic time in first class).

Here’s the ad:

Moral of the story: Even coach is nice when you’re flying Emirates — but you better be prepared to pay some pretty unpopular fees.

How was your economy experience on the Emirates A380?
