Emirates is once again running their special where if you are traveling with a party of 2
or more, its only $404 per person. Last time Emirates ran this promotion in October, it was $497. So this is even better. That’s a very good deal for nonstop service between New York and Milan.
Once again, to get this price, you must travel in a party of 2
or more! If it just one person, it is $660.
Update: Our reader Faye pointed out to us that this only works for 2 passengers and not more.
Update 1/19/2015 @ 2:50PM Eastern – for United flyers, they have matched this out of Newark! United’s fare works for 2 OR MORE. So if you are a party of 3, it works. Less availability than Emirates though.
