FLIGHT INFO: Return trip open jaw current price as of posting this.
LAX-DUB-LON-LAX $750 BA/AA PRICE is economy. British Airways baggage rules at the moment include one checked bag. American does not. This price is an advanced booking. No refunds or name changes. Lowest price I was quoted for the same flight as a group booking which would allow us refunds and name changes was $975 I thought the price differential was too much to go ahead and book a group. If I get enough interest I can do that later.
Other carriers do the same flight. Aer Lingus is the only carrier that offers a direct flight to Dublin, beware, if you book this carrier they do not offer a direct flight coming back (reminder, our flight back is from London) so it’s swings and roundabouts because most of the other carriers flights from London are non-stop.
