Dub to LAX for €298 rtn

Absolutely insane price from ebookers, must be booked by 31 Oct and good for travel up to 31 March. Might have to oblige

Good price and availability but flights appear to be via LHR.

I'd pay an extra €200 to avoid LHR and pre clear in Dublin.

Yep Heathrow is a bitch but for the price it's a no brainer, it's a direct flight from London which is some consolation.

Very true, don't mean to take away from the bargain as it is a really good one.

Good spot.

The main disadvantage is the need to clear immigration in the USA when you land. Then you've the queues in Heathrow, the added security and the need to change terminals. If money > time then Heathrow is your man.

It's only an issue if you're super fussy

BTW there's no terminal change in Heathrow as bmi and United are both in Terminal 1, bags will be checked all the way thru to LAX too as it's a codeshare flight. I just did this exact trip with these airlines so speaking from first hand experience.

I wont have time to fuss, as long i get to LAX i couldnt care. I'm flying with Virgin to LA so hopefully they are in terminal 1? I have plenty of time as it is, enough to have a drink or some.

Ah you should be fine, I'm probably over exaggerating it.
