What’s the Best Way to Fly Emirates First Class After the Miles Price Hike?

How FCF’s Emirates price hike workaround for First Class can still save you up to 67% in cash

Emirates has caught the inflation virus. Miles prices have risen by 20% right across the board in their Premium cabins.

Here are a couple of examples: the price from New York to Milan round-trip was 170,000 miles in First Class, now it’s 204,000; the price from Washington, DC, to Dubai round-trip has climbed from 272,500 miles to 327,000 miles. The charts below document the carnage for First Class and Business. Keep in mind that taxes run about $1,714 to Dubai, and around $250 to Europe.
