Everyone has his own theory on the best time to buy an airplane ticket. Some may have heard that Tuesday is the best day, others swear you have to book at least six months out to get the best savings, while some opt for last minute ticket deals.
I just received this email and had to share it with you all:
This is a great price for flights to Italy. I haven't seen many flights lower than this in a while, and Emirates is a great airline. It was recently awarded Center for Aviation Airline of the Year award for the third time.
It makes me want to go back for a weekend in December to go Christmas shopping!
In case you missed our update about their new route in the June newsletter, Middle Eastern airline Emirates entered the U.S.-Italy market with a bang, offering nearly twice as many seats per day as the airlines currently servicing the route.
Beginning October 1, it also became the only airline to offer a true luxury flight experience between NYC and Milan. Each of its 777-300s planes has 12 first-class suites and 42 lie-flat business class seats.
Sweetening the pot even further, if the Emirates sale doesn't work for you for some reason, domestic carriers have created interesting offers to try to match their new competition.
Delta has matched Emirates prices (even going a bit lower in some cases) and offered extra frequent flyer miles on this route.
If you've been waiting for the right time to book flights, we won't see a fare face-off like this again for years.
