Ethiopian Airlines and Virgin America SFO to Dublin, Ireland $507 round trip

Star Alliance member Ethiopian Airlines flies nonstop between Los Angeles LAX and Dublin, Ireland. There is a $507 round trip fare from San Francisco to Dublin, only available through OTA sites like Priceline, flying Virgin America for SFO-LAX segments and Ethiopian Airlines LAX-Dublin.

Since this is only found on OTA sites and even Google Flights or ITA Matrix does not see these fares, I only located availability for Monday departures and returns in February: Feb 1-8, Feb 8-15, Feb 15-22 and Feb 22-29.

Priceline Ticket: San Francisco – Los Angeles – Dublin, Ireland

$507.08  Monday February 8 – Monday February 15

United Mileage Plus gives 50% miles credit for discount economy Ethiopian booking codes. I was unable to determine the booking code for these flights.
