Heading to Europe in 2016? Flying Emirates to Milan might be your best bet. The airline recently began its popular book-for-two promotion for travel to Milan on its flagship A380, including deals in all three classes of service — round-trip economy seats start at $449 per person, with business class from $1,999 and first class from $3,640. Travel dates for this offer are available February 1 through November 30, although there’s a big blackout window during the summer if you’re planning to fly in coach.
Emirates is offering this deal until January 27, so you’ve still got a couple of days left to book. Moreover, the exact terms and conditions for each class of travel vary, so we recommend reviewing the appropriate information before booking so you don’t end up with a $100 weekend surcharge or a no-show fee if you choose not to fly at all.
