Last week, Emirates emailed frequent flyers with some great deals on flights to Dubai in both coach and business class, but unfortunately some readers had difficulty booking using the discount code. Over the weekend, however, Emirates shared a deal that’s open to all customers, and while the fares aren’t quite as low, there are still some significant savings to be had. Like last week’s sale, you’ll need to book two seats together to take advantage of these fares.
Tickets for two in economy class to Amman (AMM), Beirut (BEY), Dubai (DXB) and Muscat (MCT) will run you just $1,599. Business-class seats are available for $7,999 to Amman, Beirut and Muscat and $9,999 to Dubai. These fares are available from all of Emirates’ US gateways, including including Boston (BOS), Chicago (ORD), Dallas (DFW), Houston (IAH), Los Angeles (LAX), New York (JFK), Orlando (MCO), San Francisco (SFO), Seattle (SEA) and Washington D.C. (IAD).
You have until June 17 to book flights for travel between August 1, 2015 and March, 31, 2015.
Here are a few examples of fares we found:
New York (JFK)-Beirut (BEY) for $799 on Emirates:
Dallas (DFW)-Amman (AMM) for $799 on Emirates:
Boston (BOS)-Dubai (DXB) for $799 on Emirates:
New York (JFK)-Amman (AMM) for $3,999 on Emirates in business class:
