North America: Business Class Starting at €1,004 From Dublin (all Alliances)

Akuma Beach in der Nähe von Cancún, Mexiko

All three airline alliances – Star Alliance, SkyTeam, and Oneworld, are currently running enormous sales for business class flights from Dublin to Canada, Mexico, and the USA. Not only can you choose from a massive amount of destinations, but the selection of airlines is also big: Lufthansa, Air Canada, British Airways, Iberia, KLM, Air France, Delta, TAP, and many more…


Worldwide travel restrictions are in place to slow the spread of Covid-19. We strongly recommend gathering detailed information about the travel and quarantine restrictions that apply to your desired origin and destination.

A good start is the International Air Transport Association (IATA) website. It provides current updates on a country’s immigration policies. Even better, the Covid-19 Travel Regulations Map is one of the most useful tools you can find.

Here are the many options that you have, separated by alliance:

Star Alliance



All airlines offer very similar service levels. You can usually take 2 pieces of 32kg-luggage on your trip, will fly on a seat that can be converted into a bed, and will have lounge access at the airports.

By the way, there are even more deals departing from Ireland:

Just like their prices, the three alliances also have very similar fare rules. They all only state that your trip has to include a Sunday. While SkyTeam does not mention an expiration date in its rules, the other two alliances write that you need to book these flights before February 2, 2021.

You can find all possible routes on Google Flights, and should then book directly on Lufthansa‘s, KLM‘s, or British Airways‘ website. There’s daily availability from May onward.
