Once again TAP Portugal is offering great Business Class fares from Dublin to various cities in the US as well as to Toronto, Canada. The pricing for connections to Chicago and San Francisco is especially attractive. You’ll be able to find this sweet deal starting in June up until March 2020. Even during the summer holidays, there is some availability.
- Chicago at €1,138
- Washington at €1,194
- San Francisco at €1,194
- New York at €1,296
- Toronto at €1,287
- Boston at €1,307
- Miami at €1,433
Many Star Alliance frequent flyer programs will credit you with up to 200% of the distance traveled. This means you can get 27.000 Miles for one roundtrip.
Since TAP is a Portuguese Airline, there will always be a stop-over in Lisbon included. Sometimes, unfortunately, you will have to stay overnight, depending on your connection. But considering the extremely competitive pricing, it should be worth it.
On your way to North America, you will either be on board of an Airbus A330, an Airbus A340 or – and that would be the best option if you can choose – the brand new Airbus A330-neo. The latter is equipped with the stylish new Business Class that TAP is installing on its fleet:
Another curious case is the trip to Washington, which is scheduled to be an Airbus A321 NEO operating. Usually a single aisle aircraft with a short haul Business Class, TAP advertises lie flat seats on this flight:
You should be aware of the fact that the information you get from Google doesn’t guarantee that you’ll be sitting in one of the brand-new Business Class seats. Like any other airline, TAP can change the aircraft on short notice.

Unluckily, the fare rules do not specify how long this offer will be available. Neither do they specify any limitations on stays or travel period. However, Google Flights shows availability from June 2019 through March 2020.
