Help needed with ORD-DUB-ORD booking

Hi,
I'm trying to use the 105K + Avios I have & thought ORD-DUB-ORD on AA metal in Business, would be a good way to do it. I called BA and they said it's 80K Avios + $723.xx in fees. I'm familiar with the YQ fees so I wasn't shocked.

Is there a way to travel ORD-DUB-ORD, using BA Avios, w/o the HUGE YQ fees? Connections are fine. I'm open to ALL options.

As an alternative I'll probably use my Avios to fly partner routes from the Mainland to Hawaii.

TIA!

Sure. Call BA and redeem your Avios for Business Class seats on Aer Lingus' nonstop between ORD and DUB. Very low fees. (Aer Lingus is one of BA's non-oneworld partners.)

http://www.oneworld.com/ Thanks, but I don't see Aer Lingus on this list. Ah, now I see them on the "Other Partner Airlines" list. I'll call BA tomorrow & see what transpires. Thanks!!!

Just booked our flts. in Business on Aer Lingus. Thanks again for your tip! And the YQ & other fees were only $121/person. Sweeeet.

Has anyone flown the ORD-DUB non-stop recently? I've heard it's a good 'hard' product. Seat recommend for Business lay-flat?
