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 offering a limited-time only fare sale from the US to Dubai. We’re seeing fares from $698 round-trip in economy from Boston (BOS) and New York (JFK) to Dubai (DXB), valid for departures between September 2016 and June 2017 with blackout dates around the Christmas and New Year’s holidays.
