Airfare deals are typically only available on
limited dates. We recommend you use Google
Flights
 to find dates to fly, then book through an online
travel agency, such as Orbitz or Expedia, which allows you
to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one
day of booking. However, if you’re using The
Platinum Card® from American Express
 you’ll need
to book
directly with the airline or through Amex Travel portal to get 5x
MR points
. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right
away and take advantage of Orbitz or Expedia’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable
to get the time away from work or family.

Emirates is offering a special
2-for-1 Valentine’s Day fare sale
so you and your loved one
(or friend) can fly in style in economy, business and first
class.
