Emirates – $497: New York – Kuwait City, Kuwait. Roundtrip, including all Taxes

A few weeks ago, we posted something similar with this Milan, Dubai and Kuwait fare. The fare to Kuwait was $590 on the last post. Now it has dropped to an incredible $497. Unlike the previous fare, it does not seem that a stopover in Milan is possible. Outside of the Wideroe mistake, we haven’t seen a fare to the Middle East this cheap in a very long time.

Available from Dallas for $497, Los Angeles for $547, Chicago at $317, Washington D.C. at $412, Boston at $436 and Houston for $386.

Update 7/30/2014 @ 12:30PM Eastern – fare gone

  • 14,758 or 3.4 cents per mile. Emirates is an Alaska Air partner. This fare will earn 50% mileage with Alaska or 7,379 miles. There was a promotion for double miles that required registration by July 15th for travel until November 30th. The link is still active on the Alaska site — we do not know if it will actually work. But since it is still active, might as well try if you haven’t already register.
