Only Emirates provides direct flights to Dubai from the USA. The quickest flight takes about 12 and a half hours, but it depends on your departure airport. The quickest flights are from JFK since it lies on the East Coast, while the longest flights are from LAX, on the West Coast. You can get these direct flights to DXB from JFK, ORD, LAX, IAD, HOU, and SFO. You can also get single-layover and double-layover flights to Dubai offered by airlines like Turkish Airlines, Egypt Air, United Airlines, and Delta, and these are cheaper than nonstop flights to DXB.
Since there are one- and two-layover flights to DXB, you can expect a layover somewhere when you board these flights. Most of these one- and two-stop flights are provided by other airlines, not Emirates. Moreover, most airlines have layovers in their respective hub cities in the case of single-layover flights. In the case of two stops, one stop is usually in the airline’s hub city and the other in Canada. Turkish Airlines, Egypt Air, United Airlines, KLM, Saudia, and Delta provide most of the single-layover flights to DXB, so you can expect layovers in Istanbul, Cairo, Frankfurt, Amsterdam, Amsterdam, Riyadh, and Amsterdam, respectively. United Airlines and Air Canada provide most of the two-layover flights to DXB and expect layovers in Newark and Toronto if you’re on these flights. Flights with more than one stop can add up to 24 hours to the flight time but are significantly cheaper than direct flights.
