Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency, such as Orbitz or Expedia, 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 or Expedia’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to get the time away from work or family.

Royal Jordanian is currently offering great fares from both New York (JFK) and Chicago (ORD) to Dubai (DXB) — score a ticket from just $547 round-trip. These fares are available for departures from February through March of next year. Flights to Dubai are typically at least a few hundred dollars more expensive than these prices, so if you’ve been wanting to visit, now’s the time to book. Plus, since Royal Jordanian is a Oneworld alliance partner, you can credit your flights to your American AAdvantage account. Note that you’ll have a stop in each way in Amman (AMM), but the layovers are generally short. In this case, you’ll want to search for your tickets through Google Flights and then complete booking through Expedia.
