Calgary to Dublin or Shannon, Ireland - $429 CAD (St. Patrick's Day) to $681 CAD (peak summer July flights)

Dublin, Ireland

I'm seeing some interesting fares from Calgary to Dublin, Ireland that range from around $447 CAD roundtrip in the winter months (such as in March, over St. Patrick's Day) to $681 CAD roundtrip for peak summer travel in July.

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

You can also try searching for flights to Shannon, Ireland (SNN).

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. You may also find slightly faster flights.

1. Go to CheapOAir ($USD site)

2. Search for a flight from Calgary 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 MST - 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.
