Hollywood star and Greek American actress Jennifer Aniston makes a return to the Emirates A380 in a new ad for the airline, which builds on the success of the previous one Aniston appeared in last year- a much talked-about campaign which quickly went viral.

“We were overrun with requests to see Jennifer again. She has an enduring, universal appeal that is at once sophisticated, but also down to earth – a great match for our brand,” says Boutros Boutros, Emirates’ Divisional Senior Vice President, Corporate Communications, Marketing & Brand.

“This new ad perfectly captures the fun, spontaneity and glamour of flying on Emirates, and we are confident audiences will find it as memorable as the first.”

In the new ad for the airline, she’s not just celebrating the famed First Class cabin set-up—she’s also flying economy.

This time around, she’s taking on two of a frequent flyer’s most dreaded topics- kids and the middle seat. After teaming up with Cooper, a boy who makes his way to the First Class cabins while his family is in economy, Aniston then takes a tour of the plane with him and eventually find their way back to Cooper’s family, where Ansiton swaps seats with Cooper’s mum- giving her a Private Suite in return for a middle seat in economy, with the kids.
