Business class fares Dublin or Belfast to Orlando return £650.40 @ United.com July/August

Found 10th Jan 2016
Another interesting business class fare from Dublin to Orlando in July/August for £651 (note you will pay in USD on United site). Edit: Some reports of payment problems for the Dublin departures so go to desktop UK site and you'll pay in Gbp £650.40.

Belfast a few pence cheaper!

There does seem to be some interesting business class fares for Miami, San Fran etc between the £7-£800 mark if anyone is interested for the period of July and August.

Note although it says first class it is a P class fare and will be business not first class... I'm not sure first class is even operated on these flights they do a BusinessFirst. If you do get first class then consider that a definite bonus!

FIrst in the US domestic market is Business Class.
Correct me if I'm wrong but these aren't non-stop flights - these are change over ones? Would it not take the pleasure of going business class if you're changing over?

Also, I'm only 90 minutes drive from Dublin but any of you mainland UK peeps, that'd be 3 flights.
HOTTTTT! plus you can clear US immigration in Dublin and avoid the queue in Orlando.

Yeah unfortunately no non stop flights at this price. Some have longer/shorter stopovers too so you'll need to carefully work out which connecting flights are best.

Just saw and voted hot on your other post with non stop New York flights. If you want to include a day or two in Dublin as part of a holiday then I guess it wouldn't be so bad.
looks good, but it won't let you pay.

Who you booking through? Was able to get to payment last night - try another OTA
We tried a few times with different cards on united.com US site. It lets you enter all the card details but when you press submit it thinks about it for a while and then gives an error message. It doesn't say that the payment is declined, just that an error has occurred.
What are your dates?
very flexible in Aug 2-4weeks as long as back for 1 Sept
Are you using the mobile or desktop site? Was able to make a booking using desktop and choosing cash as payment option (so should let you pay on card). Total was £650.40 and it was in UK site.

Obviously I'm not going to book it which is why I choose cash and fake details but it does seem to work. So UK site and it will give you price in £ not $.

Don't get excited by first class on an internal usa flight - apart from Virgin America first which is awesome - United first on an internal flight just means you get a seat with almost enough leg room for a human.

I’ve flown United B/F a few times and it is a very solid hard Business Class product, what lets the American carriers down is the quality of the food service on board. But more than worth it at this price. A couple of notes -

P Class is normally used for bookings with a TATL Business Class sector followed by a domestic First class sector. Domestic First in the US is completely different to First on transatlantic flights and doesn’t feature lie flat seats - it's similar to Club Europe on BA, a slightly better standard of service and a bit more space. Also worth noting the TATL United flights do not have a first class cabin. So while you will fly F on your domestic American leg, you will not be in First flying to America.

Another note - it is worth checking that all of your flights are booked into the correct fare class as you can get booked into Economy on domestic legs where there is not availability. So double-double check that your domestic flights are booked into First (P).

Dublin is fast becoming a hub for this type of journey - BA are doing Business Class flights to NYC for the same period for around £796 with a connection in Heathrow which may suit others better.

Almost certainly not a lie flat bed - just a bigger seat which reclines more than economy, better food and cabin staff who speak to you by name EVERY time you have contact (which becomes irritating!). Possibly access to lounge at Newark though as the airport itself is a pit and you definitely don't want to step outside. Yes, nicer than economy but is it really worth that much more than economy, especially as you have to change once or twice. Sounds like a potential nightmare journey to me, especially if you miss that tight connection on the way out.

PS Florida is horrible in July/August anyway: very hot, very humid and full of Brits and bugs. See the real Florida in Feb/March - it's wonderful. That's why Americans go there in winter and get out for the summer.

Yes BA can be found for slightly more. I'd just look for flights too that have the A330 where it is lie flat beds. Main point is for this price there is very little difference in price between economy and business. The NY ones are direct too. There are various combos of this itinerary with open jaws and longer connections.

For those in North West if you don't want to fly to Dublin look at ferry from Liverpool to Dublin, could work out more economical allowing luggage etc if you also take car.

Probably not a lie flat bed



Please bear in mind that these are all narrow bodied planes. The flight out of DUB is on a 757, which has 180 deg lay flat seats (76" pitch), the internal US flights are A320 / B737 and have seats that just recline a bit (typically 38" pitch).

Good price, but a long way short of EK, EY or CX standards for business class.

Some people may only be able to do July/August for school holidays. These fares also worked on selected March and April dates too though.
Seems quite generous on the luggage allowance at 32kg. Usually only 25kg isn't it so perhaps a bump due to business class?
United? I hear they break guitars.

32kg is standard for business class

One way travel is nowhere near this price! Can't you just book a return or a fare that allows you to change dates?
Got excited till I realised it's only one way. COLD!!!

Its return flights, why would I post one way!!! One way flights are more expensive!
Belfast is also similar price but I guess for most it may be cheaper to get to Dublin.

Did you start on the US site or do it all on UK? The availability of cheap prices is much better on US but it just won't let me pay with card. How do you confirm payment if you choose cash?

UK site and then it should let you pay on your card. I've no idea re cash but I tested it again with my own email and I did get a confirmation.
Thanks. The flights that are cheap are much better times / durations on the US site so trying to find a way to pay on there.

You sure you can't get them on the UK site if you try and replicate it - you should be able to get the same.

United whatever the class is just not a nice experience.. I avoid this airline like the plague.
Anyone who sees better prices/ flight times on the US site will have to call the USA reservation number 1-800-864-8331 in order to buy their flights. They'll bill you in £ but it will be equivalent to the $ price. Use the international call checker on moneysavingexpert to call the USA for just 1p per minute.

Did you do an actual booking yourself by phoning them? Only asking because I do want to make a booking (cheaper and better flight plan on US website for my preferred journey) but don't want to alarm them if these prices are somewhat a glitch...thanks
