Emirates is advertising some specific routes for this promotion to cities like Milan (MXP), Athens (ATH), Bangkok (BKK), Cape Town (CPT), Dubai (DXB), Bali (DPS), Johannesburg (JNB), and Nairobi (NBO). Although, it also states that companion fares are also available to India and select Far East destinations, so it's fair to say that you may get a discount for any route on Emirates when traveling with a companion.
