SAS currently offers premium economy flights from New York, Washington DC, and Chicago to Dublin starting at US$540 (~€497). This price includes lounge access, some priority services, and two transatlantic crossings with extra legroom and mileage. You can check one bag of 23 kilos or 50 pounds and carry two bags on board. Most economy class tickets are more expensive than this offer by the Scandinavian airline.
The flights from Washington DC require you to spend 21 hours in Copenhagen on the way back. However, you might as well see it as a good opportunity to explore the Danish capital.
You can depart:
- From New York: US$540 (~€497)
- From Washington D.C.: US$544 (~€500) (21 hours in Copenhagen on inbound flight)
- From Chicago: US$623 (~€573)
Our calendar displays the cheapest available for trips of up to 52 days. This calendar does not include trips with overnight layovers, except from Washington DC where they are inevitable. Our calendar can redirect you to Skyscanner, where you’ll get the cheapest price, or to SAS’ website.
Transatlantic segments are usually operated with an Airbus A330, featuring a 2-3-2 in premium economy. Only from Washington DC will you be flying in an Airbus A350. Flying SAS premium economy (or SAS Plus) is especially attractive since the fare includes SAS lounge access and priority services.
Flights from & to Dublin are marketed as SAS Plus, too. However, you can’t expect any special seating (not even a blocked middle seat) on these trips but will get a free meal compared to economy class travel.
Search & Book
SAS’ current sale lasts until November 27, 2023 and applies to flights between November 30 and April 29, though we couldn’t find any availability before February. Our calendar above displays the available dates, as does Google Flights. You can book on SAS’ website or save around $25 by getting the cheapest price on Skyscanner.
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.

SAS has announced that it will leave the Star Alliance to join SkyTeam. The date of the switch is unknown. Should your flight take place after the switch, you probably won’t be able to earn any miles at any Star Alliance program.
