Fly Emirates Business Class to Europe for 90,000 Miles Roundtrip this Fall and Winter. Taxes are only $220. This award is available on Emirates' Fifth Freedom Newark EWR to Athens ATH route, with good availability October 2022-February 2023, per VFTW. While that is low season for Europe, it's also a good time to escape the high season crowds and enjoy a more local experience. October-November and even early December are still pleasant months in much of southern Europe, and this season is also good for including Morocco or Egypt.
Note that unfortunately, Emirates flies an angled flat seat on the 777-300ER flight between EWR and Athens, and this is a huge detractor in our book, so we won't be booking this for ourselves. But for people who can sleep or get decent rest on an angled flat seat.
Transferring Points to Emirates Skywards
AMEX Membership Rewards, Chase Ultimate Rewards, and Citi ThankYou points all transfer 1:1 to Emirates Skywards. As we've noted in other posts, we typically prefer to use Chase Ultimate Rewards points, because we can earn so many of them with 3X-5X category spend bonuses via our Chase Freedom, Ink, and Sapphire Reserve cards.
