Air Canada Boeing 787-9 Business Class Sitz Mitte

Star Alliance member Air Canada brings us today a business class deal from Dublin to the west coast of the United States with a stop in Canada starting at just €1,637. This deal includes 2x 23kg checked luggage and all the business class perks. Departures are available from June to February 2025.


Even if you don’t plan to leave the airport, you still need to have a valid visa to enter Canada and connect with your flight to the United States. More information can be found here.

On the positive side, you can complete preclearance in Canada before entering the United States, allowing you to arrive without needing to go through immigration upon arrival.

These are some of the airports where you can take advantage of this deal:

First, you will fly from Dublin to Canada with Air Canada, using a Boeing 787 with a 1-2-1 lie-flat seat configuration. Depending on your connection, you will fly to either Toronto, Montreal, or Vancouver. Then, you will likely fly to the United States with a 2-2 recliner seat configuration (which is considered first class in North America) configuration with Air Canada. However, in some options, you will connect with United through Chicago.

Please note that on the outbound flight, you may have a 7-8 hour layover in either Montreal or Toronto, which you can use to explore the city or enjoy the lounge for the day.

Search & Book

A minimum stay of a Saturday overnight stay, and a maximum stay of twelve months applies. Departures are available from June to February 2025.

You can find suitable dates using our calendar above or with the help of Google Flights. We recommend booking directly on Air Canada’s website, but you can find cheaper prices with Skyscanner. However, booking on OTAs has its downsides.

Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?

More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend booking with the airlines directly. There are two main reasons for that:

Better Customer Service
In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airline has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.

If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward information like flight changes instead of receiving them directly from the airline. In many cases, you may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem-solving.

This especially applies to premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.

Baggage and Other Fees
Economy fares not including hold luggage are industry standard by now. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.

This also applies to other things like food services, insurances or priority treatment. In almost all cases, you pay less for additional amenities when booking on the airlines’ website.

Information & Tips for USA

The USA offers many sights, natural wonders and cultural significance. Thanks to numerous airlines offering flights across the Atlantic, it is always pretty inexpensive to get there. Alternatively, you can also cross the Atlantic by boat.

Immigration, ESTA & Visa Requirements

The USA has one of the strictest entry regulations in the world. Most EU citizens, among others, are lucky to be able to participate in the so-called Visa Waiver Program. If you get an electronic entry permit (ESTA)  for approximately €20, you don’t need a visa for entry.

The Best Time to Visit

Due to its sheer size, the perfect time to visit the USA varies greatly from region to region. In winter, Florida is very popular due to the mild temperatures. In the summer the West and East Coasts are flooded by tourists which drives up the prices for hotels and flights and during the Indian Summer in late autumn New England is a very popular destination. The hurricane season between July and September can be dangerous in the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico. Florida and the southern states are regularly struck by these tropical storms. Blizzards occur from the East Coast to the Midwest during the winter months and regularly put air traffic and public life on hold.

The US dollar is widely used throughout the world and accepted as a currency in most tourist hotspots worldwide. That being said, carrying cash isn’t necessary in the US, all you need is a credit card! These are very common in the USA and are accepted pretty much everywhere without any issues. If you already have a credit card in your wallet, you should make sure that it does not charge a foreign currency fee if possible. Carrying a few dollars in cash doesn’t hurt though. You might need cash e.g. for the bus ticket if you want to buy it directly from the driver. Most of the time you even have to give exact change.
