American / British Airways has a good Premium Economy fare to Dublin. The segment over the Atlantic will be in Premium Economy while the segment connecting to that will be in Coach. There is a cheaper fare than the price we showed above but will connect in the United States (New York or Miami). That is about $40 cheaper but you will have to spend 5 to 6 hours in coach between San Francisco and New York or Miami
Using our routing below will ensure you have either American or British Airways’ Premium Economy product between Dallas and London. With that routing, you will only spend about two hours in coach between London and Barcelona
Delta has a cheaper fare, but Delta does not have a TRUE premium economy product to Europe outside of ONE flight from Detroit to Amsterdam.
(We are testing Premium Economy / Business Class / First Class deals the next few weeks to sort out some workflow and algorithms issues, we will see how it goes and whether to make this a regular feature – for Business Class / First Class deals.)
