Emirates is famous for their A380 first class which is affectionately known as Shower Class for having amazing shower spas onboard. Their new 77Ws also have a truly fantastic new first class product, though only the A380s have showers onboard.

How can I use Emirates to fly from NYC to TLV?

Genius

JFK-IKA-TLV

dave

IKA? as in Iran to TLV? is that a good idea 🙂

Yelped

It’s usually the other way around. You can catch a ride back with the IAF planes.

Any sweet spots on their award chart?

Pointer

For travel on AA.

Pointer

Off peak Europe 20k. AA (Econ.)

44k to Africa, AT (business)

Yitz

If I dont plan on flying Emirates ever does this provide any value? Say for Domestic or Israel fights?

chaim

since emirates now became a viable option for many people it would be great of you could publish their award charts

Jaymar01

Watch out for some hefty fuel surcharges before booking.

It is exactly 1 year ago when chase added jetblue as a transfer partner & has removed korean air at the same time. Maybe again next year this time they will add another partner.

Abey

Yawn…can he have nice things like OZ or A3 ? One can dream

Artem

welp there goes award availabilty, watch emirates be flooded with kids using points now

JJ

Time for current chart w options and cost for chase UR to Israel on coach and biz
Most of us will take a shower class at home

Charlie

I fly Emirates all the time from MXP to JFK. It’s a superb experience and the latest (timewise) flight out of Italy avoiding the need to kill a full day on board. I typically go UA EWR-MXP and hack a GPU an hour before the flight and use Emirates for the return. Book a economy flex at 700 euro and upgrade with 30K mikes. It’s my most well spent miles. I do it 5-6 times annually.
Athens is also a good option for a entry and exit off the European continent

Archie

Does Emirates have a lot of availability for upgrading to business?

Charlie

I never have an issue. Occasionally it’ll clear only on the day of flight

yankel

this might need to be updated
A round-trip from JFK to Dubai in Shower Class will set you back from 217.5K miles+$1,723 in fuel surcharges.
