Star Alliance carriers Lufthansa and Air Canada have issued a bunch of attractive fares from Dublin to many US airports along the East and West Coast. You can reach Boston for as little as €674 or Los Angeles at €748 while crossing the Atlantic Ocean with some extra leg- and elbow-space. Two checked bags up to 23 kg each are included in the price, as well.
You can reach the following destinations for less than €800 round trip:
- Boston at €674
- Washington,D.C. at €675
- Chicago at €689
- Miami at €692
- San Francisco at €732
- Los Angeles at €748
Our availability calendar highlights all possible flight dates at the lowest price for trips up to 28 days. It will forward you to Lufthansa with your preselected flight dates. You can also check what OTAs have to offer, as they may sell these tickets cheaper.
If you are willing to pay more than €800, destinations like Las Vegas, New York and Philadelphia are available for around €850.
In most cases, you will first take a Lufthansa plane in economy to Frankfurt or Munich, then continue to ride across the Atlantic Ocean in Lufthansa’s premium economy. Some routings include Air Canada’s service from Dublin to Toronto before flying onwards in Air Canada’s regular economy.
Search & Book
According to the fare rules, tickets are on sale at this price until November 30, 2022 for travel in the first three months of 2023. You need to stay at least a Sunday at your destination to get the lowest fare, and may not stay longer than three months. Availability is fairly good in the travel period.
You can use Google Flights to find additional flight dates. Since we recommend booking your flights directly with Air Canada or Lufthansa, you can also search Lufthansa’s best price search for the cheap tickets.
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.
