Emirates flies to multiple destinations in the United States from Dubai International Airport (DXB) as well as a few fifth-freedom routes. These flights are operated with Boeing 777-300ER and Airbus A380 aircraft. The good news for fans of the A380 is that Emirates is adding the behemoth aircraft back on two routes in 2024.

Currently, Emirates flies between Dubai International Airport (DXB) and these US cities:

  • Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD) (daily; Boeing 777-300ER)
  • Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport (daily; Airbus A380)
  • Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) (daily; Airbus A380)
  • Miami International Airport (MIA) (daily; Boeing 777-300ER)
  • New York John F Kennedy International Airport (JFK) (2x daily; Airbus A380)
  • San Francisco International Airport (SFO) (daily; Airbus A380)
  • Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) (6x weekly with no flights on Tuesdays; Boeing 777-300ER)
  • Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD) (daily; Boeing 777-300ER that switches to an Airbus A380 on October 1st)

The Dubai-based carrier also has two fifth-freedom routes. These include:

  • Athens International Airport Eleftherios Venizelos (ATH) to/from Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) (daily; Boeing 777-300ER)
  • Milan Malpensa Airport (MXP) to/from New York John F Kennedy International Airport (JFK) (daily; Boeing 777-300ER that switches to an Airbus A380 on March 31st)

Emirates Airbus A380 offers an onboard lounge for Business Class and First Class passengers as well as an onboard shower for those in First. Each aircraft has between 484 and 517 seats.

Anthony’s Take: I love the Airbus A380. I’ve never flown Emirates but did fly it in First Class on Lufthansa, Singapore Airlines, and Thai Airways in the past.
