There are plenty of reasons to prefer business class more than ever these days, be it the extra space away from others, the flat bed to catch some zzz’s or the multi course meals and champagne. Today, there’s an easier way to justify it to!
Business class to Dublin or Rome is available from a variety of US cities at prices more often seen for premium economy. Top airlines have flat beds to Ireland or Italy for just $1788 round trip, or better! New York is about $100 bucks lower! Sure, it’s not exactly “cheap” by most definitions, but it sure beats standard prices between $3500-$5000.
$1789 Business Class To Ireland
East Coast and West, there are options to check out Dublin, Venice or Rome while flying flat, all for under $2k per person round trip. Star Alliance airlines including Air Canada, Lufthansa, Swiss, United and more; are all offering aggressive prices, which aren’t likely to last long.
In case you missed the news, Ireland reopens to Americans and other outside visitors this month, and anyone with proof of vaccination faces no quarantine or other travel related restrictions upon entry. Italy is already open to Americans and other visitors.
Ireland plans to roll back all covid-19 restrictions over the course of the month on things like large gatherings and indoor events, so the travel experience in this stunning country should include everything people come for.
The Dates You Can Travel
These flights are available over quite a few months and even into 2022. In other words, if you’re not ready to get out into the world just yet, there’s still opportunity to do so at fantastic prices both later in the year, and into 2022.
In a nice twist for short stay travelers, these deals only seem to require 2-3 night stays to bring up the lowest prices. Longer stays of a week or more are even easier and are totally fine too!
How To Book These Flights
Particularly from the West Coast, out of cities like Los Angeles, these deals are unlikely to last very long. These flights are priced thousands lower than typical business class pricing. Fortunately, Google Flights makes it incredibly easy to find them and get in while the going is good.

f you have airline miles or credit card points, you can probably even reduce the cash cost considerably.
People with points from a Chase Sapphire Card can also use their points to cover some, or all of the cost. Using the current 100,000 point bonus on the Chase Sapphire Preferred, which brings $1250 in value as a welcome bonus, a booker would face circa $525 in cash to book these, with points covering the rest.
