Maybe it’s leftover from my school years, but even though the technical start of the new year is January, I still feel like Labor Day is when all the change and business really begins. That’s why it’s the perfect time to plan your travel for the year ahead, and Emirates is leaning in to that philosophy by offering some bangin’ travel deals over Labor Day weekend.
Emirates is the luxury airline that blows all others out of the water. Their in-flight entertainment system has 2,500-plus channels. Everyone gets gourmet food, wine and drinks. There’s Wi-Fi, and mobile phone and data-roaming services on board so you can make phone calls and more. Business-class customers get fancy, comfortable seats, an in-seat minibar, lie-flat seats and access to the onboard lounge.
