Cheap flights to Las Vegas via Dublin

Found 17th JunEdited by:"sbfc"
This may be of use to someone.... I have recently been pricing up flights to Vegas and was looking at £750 per person direct with British Airways from Heathrow. However when I tried from Dublin the price came down to £400 connecting at Heathrow using the same flight as I would have direct. So I have opted for a cheap Ryanair flight to Dublin then flying via Heathrow to Las Vegas saving £600 (2of us).

I have checked a few different dates and it work every time... It isn't just British Airways either also the same with Virgin.... Just price it up on sky scanner and see how much you can save.

I know it is a bit of faff but its £600 extra for Vegas!

I have been telling people for ages about flying from dublin to america ( i always do this )

it's insane that you can fly to dublin, get a connecting flight back to heathrow and board the SAME flight you would've paid sometimes twice as much for. or just fly direct from dublin depending on your desitination

even if you have to overnight in dublin , the tenner airfare and over night in a hotel ( chose one with free airport transfers) is still worth it as you make such huge savings. Depending on time you fly over you can get a day/ decent afternoon exploring dublin centre too)

another massive bonus is you can get US preclearance in dublin for entry into america which speeds up leaving the airport america side a lot as you just whizz through

Great deal to save £600, nice find. Make sure to leave yourself plenty of time between flights as they won’t be on a through ticket.
it is a through ticket - No need to check in again

The cheap Ryanair flight TO Dublin and from Dub > LHR won't be on the same ticket though. So you will have to collect and recheck luggage in Dublin. So I think the comment above was relating to that connection.

Otherwise you will have to pay UK air passenger duty (tax) and is part of the reason these tickets are cheaper.

Actually this isn't always the case , sometimes when you collect tickets at dublin its only for the dublin> heathrow route and you need to check in again at heathrow , other times you arrive in heathrow and just stay in the transit passenger line when you arrive back in london and collect your heathrow> usa ticket from the airline desk in the transit passenger dept.

I "think" its to do with what airline you fly back to london on and what airline you fly to usa on having agreements. I always take a ba flight back to london as you get free breakfast
It’s a good deal but remember if anything happens to the Ryanair flight and you miss the LHR connection your knackered. I would always travel on the Ryanair flight a day earlier. Still hot though.
Sorry I meant Dublin to Las vegas you won't have to check in again.. the Ryanair flight we will get the night before and have an added night out in Dublin.
We've done this route a few times. Always go to DUB the day before with Ryanair but not on the last flight of the day. Also check out the sail/rail option via Holyhead to Dublin Port. seat61.com/Ire…htm.

i.e. LHR > DUB > LHR > USA -

Surely depending on how you value your time.

for me personally... most flights to west coast usa leave heathrow in the morning /lunchtime, so from where I am its almost impossible to do that route you suggested in one go . Also you can fly to dublin from many more local airports for 9.99 for me that's bristol
When booking with a hotel it's common to get between £450 - £500 direct to Vegas from Gatwick with Virgin. Just need to regularly check and search different dates.
Have done the Dublin route from Bristol and for me it's exhausting on the way back.

i never take the last flight back to dublin arrive at heathrow and take train home
We did this exact flight . Got them even cheaper at around £305 pp . We wasn’t going to tKe the risk with Ryanair having a delayed flight , as if this happens you would lose all flights then , so we still booked Ryanair flights but for the day before and after our return, then booked the premier inn Dublin at the airport.
2 nights €100 , flights £9.99 each way . But with luggage just over £100 .
So worked out £405 pp even with 2 nights hotel .
We saved £400 total , which was extra spending money .
Would I do it again ? NO
We fly next May with Thomas Cook £505 pp but that’s premium both ways direct from Manchester
You can do the same with indirect flights from Manchester to last Vegas via Heathrow with back, it's cheaper than from Heathrow direct even though you're on the same flight from Heathrow. Silly really but there's more competition from Manchester so prices are lower
Are the airline going to penalise you if you don't make the LHR to DUB return journey basically leaving the airport with your hand luggage (no you couldn't have any hold baggage as this would be being transferred to the DUB flight)
