This was an excellent sale but not entirely happy with the Emirates website though. Was able to ticket one on the Emirates' website, but other ticket had to do on travel agents website and forgo the 10% discount. Just couldn't get the Emirates.com to accept the payment.

BTW this is my pet peeve with most of the airline websites. They try to channel as much ticket sales as possible through their websites, but they don't function nowhere near as well as Expedia's of the world. Could have probably done this over the phone, but quite frankly prefer online or TA.

Got 33K miles ticketed in F at economy prices.

On the side note, the business travel market has to be softening. All the airlines and alliances have had great sales in the past month at prices never seen before.

Was this a USA bound ticket? Had a similar issue last night with a JFK ticket, the website would not let me book it. Finally rang EK, they said it would be an additional 300 dhs to book over the phone but as it turns out the agent was able to reduce the price by a staggering $2K !!!
Apparently the error relates to API information but the website doesn't allow for input of passport data during booking.

I purchased my return tickets for my last April/May trip to BNE in J in this sale in January and paid, net of the discount 2760. So the pre discount price was over 3000.

On Friday I purchased tickets for my trip back to BNE in September, no sale deal applicable. I paid 2886. Exactly the same flight numbers as before.

So the price has reduced!!!!!

YAY.

PS Well, at least, I am convincing myself it has!!!!!
