Don’t forget that you can upgrade to first class too…

When it comes to flying business class between Europe and the USA, there’s an endless array of lovely options, but there’s one that’s just a bit “extra”. Perched on the upper deck of the Airbus A380, Emirates business class offers an amazing seat, one of the best bars in the sky and an extreme level of refinement throughout. Right now, it’s on sale, about as low as Emirates ever sells it.

Leaving Milan, you’ll get to depart in the early afternoon, which makes a welcome glass of champagne totally ok. With over 8 hours in the air, there’s plenty of time to dine, relax, sleep and still have time to wander over to the bar. There’s nothing quite as “golden age of travel” as sitting at a bar on a plane.

A fun side part of these deals, is that they’re upgradeable using Emirates Skywards miles, American Express Points or Capital One Venture Miles. You’d need 39,000 points from any of those currencies to experience the dreamy first class suites, which also afford you the chance to shower at 33,000 feet. It may sound odd, but it’s life changing.

The Dates You Can Travel

These deals are handy, because they cover one of the most expensive times to travel! They’re available in July, August and September of this year, for departures on Tuesday, Thursday or Sunday. You’ll land the lowest prices if you stay at least 5 nights, but there are plenty of shorter possibilities available for the same price if you poke around.

How To Book Business Class

These deals are easy to find on Google Flights, and can be booked directly with Emirates too. Long story short: they’re easy to book. Here’s an example link on Google Flights, and here’s the link to book directly with Emirates. If you want to book with Emirates direct, to make upgrades easier, here are some sample dates you can depart from Milan, like…
