Nice! Basically can see Europe at this price. Anyone can confirm that AS elites will earn double mile bonus with EK if book this trip and fly before nov 30?

This appears to be an L fare, and as such only earns 50% with AS. The elite bonus would likely take it to full, 100% mileage, but not double mileage (200%).

i think AS's EK double mile mean 50% earning miles + 50% bonus + 100% mileage bonus if you are MVP Gold. would say anyone would net 29k miles for this trip (according to TFD's EK Kuwait deal from few weeks ago).

Is getting a kuwait visitor's visa relatively easy ? This is an excellent fare for a lot of reasons.

Visa is simple on arrival.

Hotels can be expensive, but Marriott there was a great deal with points at the time.

The fare allows for a stopover in Milan. So you do JFK-MXP <stopover> -DXB-KWI

Put hold on Sept 25 weekend, and wonder if KWI is ok for immediate turnaround? Can anyone confirm that booking this ticket will qualify for AS's Emirates double mile promotion that expire on Nov 30. I think so, but ill feel better if someone confirm for me.

I wouldn't be able to go until next August which is great because the fares rules allow travel from Aug 4 to October 31. However it says it needs to be booked by August 22. Any one venture a guess on if they'll be bookable past that date? Would love to see Kuwait.

Now it's $497.. Cancelled my booking yesterday and rebook new one . With smart routings, you can see Europe for $497 (I think mxp count as free stopover)
