Can Jennifer Aniston make Americans fall in love with Emirates? (Photo: YouTube)

Emirates Airlines must be hoping that Jennifer Aniston can give them the same cache in the United States that she was able to lend to a certain brand of fancy bottled water.

The Gulf carrier reportedly paid millions to feature the actress in their snarky new advertisement which just hit the Internet last night.

In the commercial Aniston is seen flying on an unspecified American airline. Wearing a bathrobe, she asks flight attendants where she can find the plane’s shower. She is told this particular plane is not equipped with a shower.

She then tells them she fears she will look silly walking to the plane’s bar in her bathrobe. The flight attendants laugh at her incredulously. Their plane doesn’t have a bar! Silly actress. The room spins. We learn it was all just a nightmare and Aniston wakes up in a plush bed on an actual Emirates flight where they have showers and bars and bottomless champagne.

The ad is clearly meant as a dig at American carriers that do not offer the kinds of amenities offered by their Middle Eastern counterparts.

It’s a low blow at a time when animosity is running high between U.S. airlines and the Gulf carriers.
