Emirates / United – $404: New York – Milan, Italy. Roundtrip, including all Taxes

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.

    Looking into this deal. I have an Alaska account and would like to earn Alaska miles for this. How do I set up my Emirates account to do this?

    @David – just give them your Alaska # at checkout. no need to create an Emirates SkyRewards #. see pic:

    The deal works for every two passengers. I was able to book for a total of four people, 2 on each reservation. Hope that helps! 🙂

    Emirates is also partners with JetBlue. See full list at: http://www.emirates.com/us/english/skywards/about/partners/our-partners.aspx?pub=/us/english&lang=en-US_US&stop_mobi=yes

    @Eric – Alaska is a superior program to jetBlue. jetBlue points are that not useful for int’l travel.

    Checking today and can’t find any flights for 2 people for $800 with Emirates from jfk to mxp, looked at the last week of Jan. and all 4 weeks of Feb. Help?

    Travelzoo published the Emirates deal yesterday and I think all the economy fares have since sold out — BUT now Alitalia (https://www.alitalia.com/us_en/) is matching the deal so run over there if you want to take advantage. (I just booked a May trip for $425/person tonight)

    I was kicking myself for waiting on the Emirates deal, but I just booked a JFK-MXP Sat-Sun (9 day) trip in May for my partner and I for $850 totaly through Alitalia, who is matching the Emirates prices. We got married in December and this will be our honeymoon!
