Search for Emirates Flights

Visit Emirates.com to book your flight.  Do not book with an online travel agency like Orbitz, Expedia, etc., because you can’t always tell in which fare class the ticket will be issued, and only certain Emirates fare classes earn JetBlue TrueBlue points.

Book a Flight with the Desired Earning Ratio

The number of TrueBlue points accumulated for a particular flight on Emirates depends on the fare class in which the ticket is issued.  The chart below shows the number of points earned for each Emirates fare class (also known as “booking class”).
