The best airline is certainly Emirates, but flying with them will only be worth it if you want to base yourself in Dubai and fly in and out of Dubai for your travel in the Middle East. Next airport they serve is Nice, but you should get better fares from Paris.

If you want it really cheap and adventerous, call Mahan Airlines or Iranian Airways and fly to Kish Island (an Iranian free trade zone) just opposite Dubai and take the ferry. You cannot book those two airlines in a normal travel agency, you need one specialised in Iran or a flight agency that has connections with them.

Other airlines that do it cheap are Olympic, Turkish, Malev and KLM.
You will probably get better deals if you are willing to change flights and/or go to another airport instead of Barcelona. Really shop around, a lot of the airlines that fly to Dubai aren't in the international booking system and you have to contact them directly.

And during winter there are some very cheap connections with Hapag-fly from Germany - catch a budget flight to Germany and change there.

Good sites are We used to fly Malaga - Dubai and Alitalia were always the cheapest.

You could use ryan air from Barcelona and fly into gatwick, then get on or and get Emirates, Qatar or Etihad out of Gatwick straight to Dubai, but rememebr to allow long enough time between the two flights as they will be on two tickets and ryan air will not check you in all the way through to DXB.

Hope this helps.
