Economy tickets from the US to Europe tend to hover around the $800-$1,100 mark, but right now, there’s a decent airfare deal to Europe this spring where you can score tickets on either Emirates or Alitalia on their competing New York JFK – Milan MXP route for as low as $438 per person including all taxes and fees. The catch is, you have to be traveling in a pair because single tickets are pricing out at about $620.

I checked out the route on dates during the last week of March and the first week of April using the ITA Matrix‘s calendar search for trips between 3-8 nights, and it looks like there are several dates where these fares are available:

ITA showed that these fares were available on both Emirates and Alitalia, so I went to each airline’s site to try actually booking them (since you can’t book directly on the ITA Matrix). Here’s what came up on Emirates:

As you can see, quite a few dates in there work for trips between 4-11 nights if you’re looking to make a big trip out of it. The tickets book as a Saver Fare class, which only earns 50% mileage, so it’s not really a mileage run deal on Emirates.

On Alitalia, there were also plenty of dates available, though looks like the lowest-priced tickets might already be drying up for that first week in April, but I was able to price it out on several days including the ones below:

So a total of $875.40 for two people – or $437.70 per person. Again you’ve got to book for two passengers since the price is closer to $630 for just one person. These tickets book into L class on Alitalia:

Which earns 100% miles and MQM’s on Delta per Delta’s partner airline earning chart:
