Though “the best” may be yet to come, it’s been slow in terms of great Black Friday travel deals so far this year. Perhaps that’s because we’re living in a renaissance of low fares in every cabin, if you know where to find them. One airline far more often associated with luxury than low fares is Emirates, but today, the two collide, with business class to far off destinations under $3000 round trip, and round trip economy starting from the $400’s from a variety of US gateways. Here’s everything you need to know…
Emirates has some exceptionally good deals in both economy and business class, and these can be taken down even further by using Emirates Skywards Miles, or by transferring credit card points into Emirates Skywards Miles to use “cash+miles” options.
The best economy deals in the Emirates Black Friday Sale are definitely to Europe, with fares under $500 round trip to Milan or Athens, with Milan at $449 round trip for A380 economy and Athens at $489. For anyone who’s been hoping to cross Dubai off the bucket list, that’s $729 for direct flights.
The Emirates business class deals are coming in hot this year, with the lowest offers to India for just $2950. If you know India, and know US business class prices, that’s a steal. Milan is next up at $3300 round trip. Asia is around $4,000 which would typically be a good offer, but we’re seeing lower fares from other carriers these days in that direction.
Emirates flies from: Fort Lauderdale (FLL), Orlando (MCO), Chicago (ORD), Boston (BOS), San Francisco (SFO), Los Angeles (LAX), Seattle (SEA), Dallas (DFW), Houston (IAH), Washington (IAD) and New York (JFK) (EWR) – giving you plenty of options to work with.
These deals are live and loaded into the Emirates booking system, so head over to the Black Friday promotion page and start searching. In general, the economy fares are valid from this December 4th through November 20th of 2020. For business class, these offers start for travel commencing Jan 12 2020 and go through to December 9th 2020.
You won’t find these offers on other online travel agencies initially, so definitely head over to the Emirates Black Friday Sale page, which has the offers in price order from each city. It’s worth noting that you can upgrade from economy to business, or from business to first using Skywards miles, and we have a great guide on how to do that! Enjoy the trip!
