Emirates to launch Non-Stop JFK-Dubai

Good nes for all East Coast travelllers heading to

They start JFK-Dubai non-stops from April 2004 and on their new Airbus 340-500's they have a world's first. The ceiling lighting is a technological innovation that will change according to the light outside, and during the night the ceilings will project a 'night sky' ( serious!) with stars etc overhead , this is the result of trying to find ways to aleviate jet-lag, should be quite something!

They start using this type of plane next month non-stop Dubai-Sydney. They have a large number of daily service ( all wide body, all PTV's etc )

From April next you can jump on Emirates to Dubai and then connect with their massive route network to India/Maldives/Sri Lanka, South East Asia, Far East and Australia, plus they have daily services to East Africa, plus frequent to Seychelles, Mauritius etc..

Sounds great and they are a great airline,, but wait till Singapore airlines get delivery of their new airbus. They promise it will be the experience of a lifetime. They are still the worlds no1 airline to fly with

I guess you'll have to put your sunglasses and sunscreen in your carry on.

I'll be interested when there is a MileagePlus award on Emirates from USA.

Emirates is a partner with United Mileage Plus. You can earn MP miles flying them and you can get awards on Emirates.

Problem is that none of the awards are for travel from US on Emirates.

Does anyone know if Emirates really drop their Business Class fares ex the U.S? In the past I have always managed to get real cheap fares on them within Asia and from Australia.
