Had issues, and gave up on Ek's website, which feel like .bomb's brother.. Orbitz went through successfully! IAD-KWI (a380 immediate turnaround and one night at DXB)... good sept mileage run weekend

The fare rules say you can stop over in Dubai but every time I try to do that it almost doubles the price. Looking at the first week in October. Ugh!

As a guide, I only saw Thu/Fri/Sat departures available for IAH.

Booked a Friday to Sunday (8 nights) for $409 with a 5 day layover in Dubai.

you can do cathay pacific in Prem Econ for ~$800 one-way dxb-ord.
return in PE for ~$1500. not the cheapest option but certainly more comfortable.
free stopovers in hkg.

Thank you!

Seems the majority of the fares for the Emirates ORD->KWI have been sold and are getting more expensive...

Great find!

I believe that Business class ex-DXB on CX is about $1900 w/no stopover in HKG, about $2300 with stopover.

Booked ORD-DXB-KWI $317 9/11-9/14

Just booked myself a trip to Kuwait City. I thought one full day and one night there ought to be enough. I want to go to the souk and fish market for some photography.

Only flew EK in F Suite one time BKK-HKG last year. It was great. I have no idea what their Y is like. I hope it's OK, making this 14-hour flight bearable.
