Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend that you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency, such as Orbitz, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to travel. Additionally, keep in mind that discounted partner fares may not earn miles with US-based carriers.

Emirates is putting Italy on sale this fall with round-trip flights for less than $500 per person from New York (JFK) to Milan (MXP) operated by the carrier’s A380 aircraft. In the past, this type of deal has required a purchase of at least two tickets, but this time around, you can book just one. Additionally, Emirates is allowing passengers to route through Dubai for about the same cost. While that option adds a lot of extra flight time, it’s a great way to explore Dubai for a day at a minimal extra cost. Note that you can also find these fares on other online travel agencies (OTAs) at slightly cheaper prices.
