Seeing lots of availability into next year. Great find.

Marry that with a DUB-BOS on EI with Avios, and you've got one hell of a trip home in J for the US bound.

This seems to be an error fare? What if they don't honor this, like the CMB fares that LX was rejecting?

expedia.co.uk will price the entire thing in Business for 233 GBP but will refer to I class as business or economy depending on the stage of booking. The SEZ-AUH may be operated by HM or EY depending on the day. Whether you prefer an EY 320 or an HM 330 is up to you...

Expedia will tell you it's economy but as long as the booking code is 'I' it should be in business class. GREAT fare. Grab it while you can.

How did you get it to price at 288? ITA, Expedia, etc. all have it at 338 regardless of what dates I use.
