Earlier this year, Emirates began flying the New York City area to Athens route. When they did, they launched with some very great fares and also the only non-stop option to fly around the world. And finally, in true Dubai-owned form, this flight is the only one to offer a true 3 class flight featuring their awesome first class (without the shower since it is not their A380). Now, they are at it again with a great deal to give you Athens for as low as $391 – if you fly with another person. Otherwise, you can do it for $449!

Finding the Deal
You can buy this directly through Emirates or through online sites like Orbitz as well. If you are buying a single ticket, it will be around $440. But, if you buy for two people on the same reservation, that ticket price drops to as low as $391 per person! These types of prices are nothing new for flights from Greece to the US but to go from the US to Greece it is a great deal!
Just use this Google Flights link and then adjust it for the dates you wish. Date availability is wide open so definitely check and book soon! The deal ends today so this is your chance!
As someone who flies between the US and Greece fairly often, I am excited about this deal and the fact that Emirates flies this route yearround. Many people think of Greece as a summertime destination but there are still some beautiful (and cheap) places off-season as well! Check out some of those island resort prices in October – one day may cost as much as $800 per night and the next it can drop to $200!
