Dublin is the primary battle ground in Europe in the current fare war raging across the USA for Europe between American, Delta and United and their alliance partners. In addition to $317 round trip Delta fare from Washington D.C.to Dublin today, there is also a Delta $346 round trip fare to Dublin from Philadelphia. Even lower is $331 round trip flying United Airlines from Philadelphia. This is another attack on American’s PHL hub.
Departure Dates: Lowest sale price is flight departures from November to March 2017. Holiday periods in December do not have low fares.
This fare has been around in different forms for more than a week from Philadelphia and D.C. and even from San Francisco last weekend when Delta had fares in the upper $300s for SFO-DUB. Some of United’s low $332 tickets include Amtrak train service connecting Philadelphia to Newark EWR for a United Airlines flight to Dublin. The train ride is one hour and counts as a United codeshare flight.
Four days ago a similar fare from United was around and some day there was an even lower $300 Air Canada round trip ticket from PHL to Dublin via Canada with connection in Toronto.
