Afdal Airlines on "Sex and the City 2": A Copy of the Emirates A380

This is one of a series of posts about the Emirates A380:

The 2010 sequel "Sex and the City 2" should have been called either "Sex and the Desert" or "Sex and the Excess". It was a film that totally lost touch with what made it popular and suffered in extreme lavishness of consumerism. One of these excesses included the four main characters (Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon) flying first class to Abu Dhabi.

Of course they had to travel in style flying on the fictional airline Afdal Air. It was obvious their flight accommodations were designed after the Emirates A380 manufactured by Airbus. The first class cabin was replicated exactly to include the suites with sliding privacy doors and social lounge where the gang enjoy a round of Cosmos.
