Airlines Are Offering Big Sales for the Fourth of July
Starting Friday, Emirates is offering steep discounts on many of their international destinations to help you celebrate the Fourth of July.
You can take a round-trip Economy Class flight from New York City to Milan for $514, or a luxurious Business Class flight to India for $3,549 (a relative bargain). Emirates’ business class experience includes chauffeured car service to and from the airport, access to the airport lounge spa, and Bulgari amenities to freshen up before you bed down in your lie-flat seat. Other destinations on sale include Bangkok, Cape Town, and Mauritius.
Emirates isn’t the only carrier getting in on the Independence Day celebration. Southwest is selling one-way tickets starting at $44, and we found great deals from Los Angeles to Portland and Las Vegas, from Houston to Cancun, and from New York City to Nashville (one of the greatest cities in America to celebrate the holiday). For the full list of deals, check out Southwest’s Stars, Stripes, and Flights sale. Tickets for most routes are valid for travel between Aug. 23 to Dec. 17.
And if all those aren't enough of a bargain, Frontier wants you to “fly away” with seats starting at $29. Book by Independence Day to fly from Chicago to Nashville for $39, Atlanta to Orlando for $29, or Denver to Dallas for $39. Travel dates range from July 7 to the end of October.
Just one gripe: No one seems to be serving hot dogs or firecracker popsicles on their flights.
