Chicago/New York > Dubai > Kuwait > Milan - $345-$590 USD RT on A380

Deal Link:
Price:
$345-590
A great flight deal from FlyerTalk for people wanting to visit Dubai via Emirates - I would imagine Kuwait would not be on many people's list of destinations...

Yes, you will need to find your way to/from Chicago or New York (Porter/Megabus etc).

Sample itinerary:

(Price in USD)

Both ways on Emirate's A380. The deal is actually for New York > Kuwait (Dubai is a free stop over).
Also available from other US cities such as Chicago (ORD) and Houston (IAH) for more/less monies.
New York would be more economical for folks in Ontario.

Tons of dates available. Play around on ITA matrix with advanced routing code "EK+".


*Option #2*

Sample Itinerary: New York > Dubai > Kuwait > Milan > New York

Image

*Milan is a free stop over on the return flight, extra $35 for airport taxes/fees.

-----
Note: If you're paranoid about flying over Iraq... Skip this deal.

IMHO Dubai and Kuwait were more first world than many parts I've visited of the US or Canada.

Oh come on, this is kind of disingenuous. Dubai is economically important, certainly more so than Toronto, but it's nowhere near the level of Paris in terms of tourist appeal, and I would not recommend that an average Canadian spend a week of their annual vacation to go to Dubai when they could go to a hundred different cities that offer way more to the average tourist than Dubai does. It's not a third world city like someone said, but let's not make it sound as if visiting Dubai is like anything remotely on par to visiting Paris.

Anyways, edited to include the fact that though Dubai is fairly liberal in comparison to its surrounding neighbours, it's still in the Middle East. This is hearsay, but expats that I chatted with in Dubai told me that the rule of law is not the way it is here (eg. do not get into any situations with the local Emiratis, the police will favour them over you even if they're in the wrong), and simple things like taking a taxi back to your hotel while drunk can end up with you being taken to the police instead because of "public intoxication". It has a veneer of the West, but it's not the West. Take that as you will.

Just letting you guys know that Kuwait can be a tough city to visit for a demographic of travelers. If you're in a relationship and you're not tied down in marriage, you won't be able to book a hotel or stay in private rooms together with your partner, unless you can show you're legally married (marriage license etc.). There are ways around it of course, and there's lots of tolerant people in the country anyhow.

How do you create that itinerary ? Do you do a multi stop or complete trip ?

EDIT: just realized my problem was selecting dates that didn't qualify.

Valid point about Kuwait. But Dubai is much more liberal when it comes to stuff like that.

Depends on the kind of appeal you are looking for. Paris got old fashioned luxury appeal. Dubai got futuristic luxury appeal. You should have googled for images of Dubai.
