Winnipeg to Dublin or Shannon, Ireland - $387 to $476 CAD roundtrip including taxes (St. Patrick's Day and peak summer July flights)

Dublin, Ireland

I'm seeing some interesting fares from Winnipeg to Dublin, Ireland for $441 CAD roundtrip over St. Patrick's Day.

There may also be other dates throughout 2017 and 2018 that are available for a similar price.

However, most of these flights have 2 stops each way, using a combination of United Airlines and Aer Lingus and are pretty long flights.

And it's not really clear whether these prices are a mistake or not.

I'm only seeing them verify on a few booking sites.

Availability for travel

October, November 2017
January, February, March 2018
July 2018

How to find and book these flights

1. Go to Momondo

2. Search for a flight from Winnipeg to Dublin, Ireland (DUB) or Shannon, Ireland (SNN)

Try dates in the months listed above.

Try focusing on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday dates.

I've had pretty good luck with Tuesday to Tuesday dates.

examples:

[2017]

October, November - have seen dates on Momondo for $410 to $450 CAD roundtrip, but the prices don't always verify once you get to the booking site. It's possible you may be able to book them through CheapOAir.com (see below)

Tue Oct 17 to Tue Oct 24 -- $418 CAD (Momondo to GoToGate)

Nov 13 to Nov 20 -- $421 CAD (Momondo to GoToGate), slide the Max Duration slider down to 30
Nov 14 to Nov 21 -- $421 CAD (Momondo to GoToGate), click on 'Best'

[2018]

Jan 10 to Jan 27 -- $387 CAD (Momondo to Flight Network)

Tue Mar 13 to Tue Mar 20 -- $441 CAD over St. Patrick's Day, airport change in London

-- JULY / PEAK SUMMER FLIGHTS --

Jul 5 to Jul 16 -- $476 CAD (Momondo to Travel2Be)

If you see any other cheap prices that actually verify once you click through from Momondo to the booking site, please share the dates in the comments below.

So far I've had the best luck when the booking site is Flight Network. When it's GoToGate, it seems to be hit or miss (sometimes the price verifies as shown on Momondo, sometimes it jumps up).

You may also be able to book these by going to CheapOair.com - Try the dates you found on Momondo

1. Go to CheapOAir ($USD site)

2. Search for a flight from Winnipeg to Dublin, Ireland (DUB) or Shannon, Ireland (SNN)

3. Use the dates you found on Momondo - even try the dates that didn't verify once you clicked through from Momondo to the booking site. They might work.

WARNING: CheapOAir.com prices are always in $USD - so be sure to do the math.

Multiply the price you see on CheapOAir.com by 1.24 (today's exchange rate) - this will be the price you are charged in $CAD when booking with a Canadian credit card.

I've had better luck finding these on CheapOAir.com ($USD site) than on CheapOAir.ca ($CAD site).

Update 9/20 - @ 10:30 AM CST - I've seen reports of some of these bookings being cancelled, while others were issued an e-ticket.

Flight Network : People are reporting that their bookings made through Flight Network were cancelled.

CheapOAir.com : Those that were issued an e-ticket still have their bookings and all seems fine so far.

GoToGate : I haven't really seen any reports either way.

These 'mistake fares' are still showing up today. I would focus on booking with CheapOAir.com for the best chance of being issued an e-ticket.
