Gulf carrier Emirates, one of the largest and most influential airlines in the world, is currently selling tickets for its non-stop flights from Milan to New York at a very reasonable price. You can get a round-trip from Italy to JFK airport for only €380.
Emirates no longer offers any relaxed rebooking rules. These tickets are not refundable, and a change requires you to pay a fee and the fare difference.
Our availability calendar shows you all possible flight dates at the lowest fare. It forwards you either to Emirates’ website or our flight search, where tickets are slightly cheaper.
On almost every day this fare shows up, SkyTeam member Delta Air Lines sells tickets for their Milan to New York nonstop service for €330. However, this price does not include a checked bag and Emirates’ famously good board service.
The airline will operate an Airbus A380 on this route (which isn’t that big of a surprise, since Emirates owns almost half of all A380 out there). So, if you haven’t been on board of the largest passenger aircraft ever built, and it’s still on your bucket list: just another reason to go for this offer.
Search & Book
Tickets will be sold until February 8, 2022, according to the fare rules. The offer is valid for travel commencing before May 31, 2022.
You have to stay for 4 days or at least spend the night from Saturday to Sunday in New York before flying back to Europe. If you want, you can spend up to one month in the USA. Availability is fairly good within the travel period.
Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?
More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend booking with the airlines directly. There are three main reasons for that:
- The Covid-19 Pandemic
During the worldwide outbreak of Covid-19, planning international travel got more and more risky because of ever-changing restrictions. In contrast to many online travel agencies, most airlines modified their terms & conditions to become more customer friendly. Rebooking conditions are eased, change fees are waived and cancellations are much easier when there is no third party involved.
Further, by adding an OTA to your plans, you increase the risk of one service provider involved going bankrupt. Now, the airline and the online travel agency involved could vanish along with your money.
- Better Customer Service
In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airlines has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.
If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward you information like flight changes instead receiving them directly from the airline. You may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem solving.
This especially applies for premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.
- Baggage Fees
Economy fares not including hold luggage are more and more common. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.
