What are the differences between Skywards Flex and Skywards Saver fares?

A Skywards Saver fare is an Emirates fare with any of the following conditions:
(a) eligibility restrictions (such as fares for students, seniors, or companions)
(b) a limited period in which you can purchase the ticket
(c) limited seat availability and restricted conditions (such as minimum/maximum stay, flight restrictions, or advance purchase)

If you are taking a trip that is booked as a single journey but involves flying with different carriers that include Emirates, then Saver fare conditions will apply.

Saver fares earn 50% of base miles—this applies to both Skywards Miles and Tier Miles.

A Skywards Flex fare does not include any eligibility or purchase restrictions. This type of fare also earns you more miles than a Saver fare. Flex fares earn 100% of base miles—this applies to both Skywards Miles and Tier Miles. In addition, if you want to upgrade to a higher class, Flex tickets can be upgraded for fewer Skywards Miles.
