Update: It seems that SkyTeam partners Alitalia and Delta have matched Emirates’ fares on flights between JFK and Milan. Like the Emirates sale, flights are available through November 2017, excluding summer travel.
Emirates is currently running a fare sale on many routes from the US. We’re seeing the best deals on the airline’s nonstops from New York-JFK — with flights to Milan (MXP) starting at just $492 round-trip, and to Dubai (DXB) from $692 round-trip — though discounted flights are available from other cities as well.
Emirates has included many more destinations in this sale, such as Beirut (BEY), Mumbai (BOM) and Singapore (SIN), just to name a few. The sale runs through next Wednesday (December 28) and is valid for travel from January 16 through November 2, 2017 (excluding summer travel). Although you won’t be flying Emirates first class on the A380, economy isn’t bad either, as Jennifer Aniston experienced in a humorous commercial.
