Emirates is one of the Asian airlines trying to become a preferred airline for the world, what with its huge orders of the Boeing 777s and the Airbus A380s. India is a key market for the Emirates and they just brought out two great offers for Indian flyers:

MasterCard 2-day Sale from India to the World (valid 15/16 Nov 2011)

You could be booking up a ticket to the entire route network of Emirates, which includes good connectivity to Europe, USA, Middle-East and Africa, and offers you upto 10% off using the promo code INMST11.

This offer is valid only for air tickets booked on 15th and 16th November 2011 (for travel between 15th Nov 2011 to 22 Dec 2011) on the Emirates website booked via a special link at Here are the key details:

Free upgrade to First Class (valid till 31 Dec 2011)

For people booked to travel on a Round Trip on Emirates Business Class from its Indian ports till 31st December 2011,Emirates is offering a complimentary upgrade to First Class on one of the two legs of the trip. This, in my view, is an amazing promotion from Emirates to get Indian passengers to experience the Emirates First Class, and perhaps later shell out money to travel in the same regularly!

The Emirates experience is one of the best cabin-experiences in the world, both for Business and First class, and here, you are getting to use both for the price of one!

Take note, for both the promotions, Emirates flies from the metros, mini metros and all Kerala airports. Mumbai also has an Emirates Lounge! In Hyderabad, Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru, you could also call up for the complimentary limo  service at your doorstep.


Enough said, I’ll be hopping over to the website tonight to see if I am getting a good Deal to get somewhere on Emirates!
