Example Booking

Searching the Emirates website, I found seats departing Orlando MCO on February 12, with a return leg from Dubai DXB on February 26, for $787 roundtrip. It was my experience that fares are not always available at the listed prices during all travel periods. Compare rates for your specific itinerary.
