  1. @Steve – Dublin low fares are gone now. I am amazed this deal was available for Wednesday, Thursday and most of Friday with July fares under $600. I thought this deal would be gone within a few hours on Wednesday.

    When I title a post Fare Alert, that generally means I think the deal is so good it will be gone within minutes or hours. That was the case with AA on Wednesday for low Dublin fares in July.
