Here are the details of this limited-time Emirates sale:

For JFK to Milan ($499) and Newark to Athens ($599)

  • Valid when booked from June 5, 2018, 00:01 (EST) through June 8, 2018, 23:59 (EST).

As you can see, there are a lot of dates available to book these tickets! Italy and Greece are still beautiful places to visit even in September and October! In fact, you can get some steals of deals at hotels and other rental locations for those months since the peak season is ending. However, the weather can still be great so you can look forward to less crowding and cheaper prices.

Emirates Economy – Good Choice?

I have flown Emirates in economy between Newark and Athens can tell you that it is the best airline that travels non-stop between the US and Greece. You can read my review about the Emirates Economy Class flight here and you can read about the 5 reasons you should choose Emirates for flights to Greece (or Milan).

You can book the above flights directly through Emirates or you can use your Ultimate Reward points or US Bank Altitude Reserve points to wipe the trip out with points.

Buy Now or Wait?

Even the though the prices are higher than normal ($499 for Milan and $599 for Athens), I still think these are great deals. But, if you have travel for next year in mind, I would hold off for now. Emirates actually runs Black Friday sales and those should be at least $100 cheaper for travel next year.
