This isn't your average economy class cabin.

If you've been waiting for that killer airfare deal before you book your summer vacation, check out the early-bird deals Emirates is offering today—and only today. From Houston, you can fly to Milan starting at $609 or to Dubai starting at $949, but that's not all. The luxury airline is also offering flight deals to:

  • Amman, Beirut, Doha and Tehran from $1,049
  • Mumbai, Chennai, Karachi and Colombo from $1,149
  • Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Delhi, Hyderabad, Islamabad, Lahore and Dhaka from $1,224
  • Nairobi, Johannesburg, Durban and Addis Ababa from $1,249
  • Bangkok, Hong Kong, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Jakarta from $1,249

While these are only the economy class rates, you don't need to spring for the $3400 business class tickets (unless you really really really want to treat yo self), because the regular-folks seats on Emirates are already posher than your average Frontier or United flight. In addition to comfortable seats and a slew of in-flight entertainment options, even the food on board is good: vegetable biryani, lamb and vegetable stew, grilled chicken sausage frittatas—no bags of peanuts here.

Of course, if you do decide to spring for business class tickets, those are on sale too and come with the option to take advantage of Emirates' complimentary chauffeur service, which will deliver you straight to the terminal for no extra charge. Of course, if it were us, we'd save that extra scratch to buy all the beautiful outfits we found in Milan, or all the food we could eat in Bangkok, or all the wine we could drink in Johannesburg...

Whatever you decide to do, decide fast: These deals expire at midnight, and they're only valid on flights between May 20 and July 25, 2016.
