Well Dublin is in Ireland so I'd suggest you change departure country to Ireland and take it from there

reminds me of the Blacks Books episode where all 3 go on holiday to avoid the noise from builders next door, spend entire holiday airport to airport on the most ridiculous route and no actual holiday time

When around-the-clock building commences next door, Bernard, Manny and Fran decide to go on holiday. Manny wants adventure, Fran wants relaxation, and Bernard just wants somewhere exactly like the bookshop. They're quickly packed and ready to go—except for a lapse in Manny's memory, which forces them to buy cheap tickets that entitle them to see a lot of international airports.

It will take best part of 2 days to get there... no thanks...

If you only want to fly to SFO, of course there are better (more expensive) fares. But if you want to visit New York City or/and Atlanta for a day this is definitely hot!
Edited by: "Holidaypirates" 18th Aug 2012

I would pay £385 never to have to fly with either Air France or Delta ever again.

mmmmmmmmmmmm Clam Chowder, love San Francisco. Cheap as chips, and worth the changes. Gives ya a leg stretch anyway!

Don't forget to take some spare cash in case the plane runs dry and they need to refuel it!

I'd happily have 6 changes of plane to San Francisco if it saved me money (especially if it gave me free stop overs)... But then, I don't find the prospect of walking a few hundred metres a couple of times that daunting...

Some people value time and convenience more than others. So there will be people who find this deal hot, and those that find it cold.

One risk to be aware of if going for this and flying from the UK to Dublin is that if there's something wrong with your flight leg to Dublin, and you miss your Dublin -> NY/Atlanta departure, then you won't get a refund or be allowed to take the next flight. Same with coming back.

I live in Ireland so great deal for me dates also available feb/mar 2013 £311 to San Francisco is cheap not so long ago couldn't get to London for this price

Do we brits need a visa to travel to US from UK? I am getting mixed messages on this, can someone who has travelled to the US explain?

Does anyone know the cheapest way or place to fly to Sydney, Australia? I need to fly out in time to arrive by the 31st of August (Australian time) and have no set date to return (as it's a 1 year work travel visa) so any return date in the next year would do and I could change it as need be. Best I've found is £828 return from Heathrow, but I'd be happy to travel from a different foriegn airport if it would make a difference and if it was a big difference I could even fly to an alternative Australian airport. One way flights are also of interest. Any help would be much appreciated!

If it helps you can book an open jaw flight from Dublin to San Francisco that returns to London Heathrow for 415 Euro(£326) through kayak.de.
You can also book a double open jaw flying Dublin to San Francisco and returning from Los Angeles to London Heathrow for 411 Euro(£323)
The availability seems to be the same. I checked up to June 2013

I had the worst experience with KLM recently, and I would not fly with them again unless it is absolutely necessary. They were even worse than Thompson.

Hello, try using travelsupermarket.com
Cheapest fare you are looking for is 545.86 GBP with Korean Air taking 34:55h and better one would be
Malaysian Airlines for 590.39 GBP taking 21:50h.

I flew with both airlines late last year. Out to Florida with Delta (via Boston) and back to London with Air France (via Paris). Domestic flights within America are rarely up to much, but the international service was great with both airlines. Similarly, I have always found KLM (another SkyTeam member) to be an excellent and friendly airline.

Given the short notice it seems £828 is quite good. You can book a 355 day return from Frankfurt to Sydney on the Qantas website for around £860. You can also try travelsupermarket, kayak, and momondo.

I flew with Air France to Canada a few years ago, which involved getting an inter connecting flight in Paris. We didn't have enough time to get through airport security to make the flight in Paris and then Air France told us that we would have to pay for another flight. After arguing with them face to face for several hours, they begrudgingly sorted us out another flight but then, despite reassuring us to the contrary, they didn't put half of our bags on the replacement flight. We then spent every day of the holiday on the phone to Air France trying to retrieve our bags and didn't get them back until we got back from our holIday. To top it off they also lost our remaining bags on the flight back home. We tried to put a claim in to Air France for the money we had to spend on replacement clothes and they refused it but gave us a 20% off voucher for more Air France flights instead, which we duly sent back to them. Don't fly with Air France. They are a disgraceful airline.

Great deal, I wanted to go to cali and the missis wants to do some shopping in NY.

Spot on pirate.im also looking for adub to oz cheap deal if u find any

This is a fantastic deal... My sister pays maybe 50% +more than this the other way every year... I think we will be using this to return the visit . Cheers op

Good morning, if you have seen enough of San Francisco you can also continue to Hawaii for £220 return!

There is absolutely nothing wrong with them. People just have the annoying habit of having one problem (no matter how big/annoying that problem is) with an airline then insisting that people should boycott them because of it. Which is absolutely ludicrous because if we listened to them there wouldn't be a single airline we'd be able to fly with... The fact that 50 million other journeys were completely fine is somehow not good enough!

If someone on here complains about an airline, unless it's some kind of major incident, just ignore them.

What am I doing wrong then? Is it in Advanced Search?

I can get a flight from DUB-SFO and it's via JFK outbound and return, yet if I do it as two itineraries for the same dates (DUB-JFK, next day JFK-SFO) it says no flights found.

Finally... I thought the exact same. It seems popular for people to slate airlines without giving an explanation why on here. As long as the plane gets there and back for a reasonable price... some people seem to have unreasonable expectations.

I flew in Toronto last year on a deal posted on this site for £192 return (Sunwings). Excluding the dated plane interior, they could not be faulted... There were loads of doomsayers at the time harping on about delays and so on, but both legs I flew were on time. Was it as good as Singapore Airlines?... no... was it a fifth of the price?... yes.

When it comes to being compensated for delays & lost luggage etc... thats what travel insurance is for.

wooookie

Given that there are no direct flights to San Fran it doesn't add on much time. It's probably quicker for a lot of people to get to Dublin from their local airport than it is to travel to Heathrow/Gatwick if you're a northerner and don't want to pay the extortionate flight prices they normally charge from Manchester or Birmingham.

Thanks - because I can't make it work that's for sure!

Am looking to go as late into the deal as possible for 7-10 days (I can get the end of Jun with good pricing, but can't seem to figure in the stopover, despite the flights, in this case, 26/6 & 3/7 both connecting at JFK), duration governed by cheapest flight combo and looking for a 1-nighter in NYC either out or back; not fussy.

EDIT: so DUB-JFK-SFO and reverse, but as mentioned dates are only governed by getting the deal price or thereabouts.
Edited by: "spartacus101" 19th Aug 2012

i am also interested in a stopover, we want 2 go during easter half term, a week either side is also ok, would like a days stopover in NYC and atlanta either way, i.e. on the way out we stop for a day in NYC and in Atlanta on the way back or visa versa, but cant find how to do it on the website

Air France? Almost 'Air Farce'.

Tried them once to Florida via Paris because they were cheap... swore never again.

Gave them a second chance and flew them to Rio... because they were cheap.

Not falling for it a third time!

I'm pretty sure it'll be a Delta plane whichever of these airlines you book through
