Paris Hilton's Instagram Praise of Emirates First Class Worth Millions

December 12, 2014 at 12:09 PM | by | Comment (1)

Taking off on my favorite @Emirates Airlines ✈️Next stop Dubai! ❤️

Una foto publicada por Paris Hilton (@parishilton) el

3.5 million people looked at photos of Emirates First Class this week and it's all thanks to Paris Hilton.

Jetting through Miami, Dubai, India, and Los Angeles to play DJ gigs and make appearances in support of her eponymous fashion and fragrance lines this week, Hilton alleviated her in-flight boredom by planning her next photo op. Five times over the course of these travels she managed to post Instagram photos of herself enjoying the comfort of the premium class, and she's quickly becoming a champion for the airline, whether official or not.

Paris has made a habit of documenting her travels via Instagram, posing in her First Class seats when she flies commercial or opting for a full vogue next to the plane when flying private.

These images are immediately shared with her legion of followers, and average over 40,000 "likes" each. Her followers may not be subscribers of Robb Report, but they are young and impressionable, and images of aspirational travel are both memorable and an easy "like."

Considering a single tweet of hers praising the airline in 2009 (to only ~200,000 followers at the time) was valued at $1.5 million five years ago, we shudder to think of a possible valuation for her recent Instagrams, of which there have been five in one week (one a video tour of the First Class cabin).

“Filming at Bletchley Park was amazing," said star Benedict Cumberbatch. "The parts where we were at Bletchley Park were magical moments in the filming schedule. It really was very special. You really feel like you're playing slightly with ghosts. It's nerve-racking, fictionalizing what happened."
