Outside of the obvious, one of the things I missed most during the darker days of the pandemic was the incentive to go searching for great Business Class fares on Google Flights (there was no point!) but now that we’re seeing travel starting to rebound, the searches are back on and it looks as a lot of airlines are happy to offer up some very nice deals.

Right now, airlines from the oneworld alliance and the Star Alliance are offering some very nice Business Class deals for departures out of Dublin. If you’re prepared to take an overnight stop in Lisbon, you’ll find roundtrip deals for under $1,300 and if you’d like to get to your destination a lot sooner, you should find that you don’t have to go over $1,700 to book roundtrip travel to a wide variety of cities in Noth America.

The Deals

All the fares that I’m going to reference in this article can be found for travel from mid-May onwards but there’s a possibility that some may be available for dates earlier than that.

Also, keep in mind that the fares you’ll see below have been filtered to ensure that no more than one stop is required and that the total trip times aren’t ridiculous (I’ve kept them to under 17 hours) so there are fares available that are cheaper than what you see here…they just come with more onerous schedules.

As an overview of what you should find available out of Dublin, here’s a map from Google Flights:

To make sure you have the best possible experience with whatever airline you fly, it will be important to keep a close eye on what routing you book and what aircraft you fly with.

There are, for example, a lot of different ways that you can get from Dublin to Los Angeles but some routings will offer a considerably better experience than others.

If you choose to fly either of these example routings…

  • Dublin – London – Los Angeles
  • Dublin – Vancouver – Los Angeles

….you’ll be guaranteed to spend most of your time on long-haul aircraft with nice life-flat seats in the Business Class cabins (the segments I’ve highlighted) and only a relatively short amount of time on short-haul aircraft where the best you can hope for is a recliner seat.

If, on the other hand, you choose to fly a route such as this one…

  • Dublin – Philadelphia – Los Angeles

…you’ll find yourself with a nice lie-flat seat for the transatlantic portion of your journey but a less than impressive recliner seat on the 5+ hour journey between Philadelphia and LA.

On the basis that all these routings will be bookable for roughly the same amount of money, why give yourself 5+ hours in a recliner seat if you don’t have to?

Bottom Line

Airlines like American, United, British Airways, Air Canada, and Lufthansa are all currently offering some great Business Class fares for travel between Dublin and North America. I’m not sure how long these fares have been around or how long they’ll remain bookable so if you find something that works for you get it locked in before it disappears.
