B6 wide open RT J JFK-DUB $2040, half the price of EI?

Go easy on me.. I never post in the premium fare deal forum. Just booked four roundtrip tickets, JFK to DUB, on B6 (operated by IE) at $2040.00 pp, with wide open availability departing most days in June/July 2024. The same flights price out on aerlingus.com at more than double ($4140). I know very little about fare class and ticketing rule minutiae, so anyone feel free to chime in why this seems like such a great/possibly mistake fare, and what I'm missing.

Seems pretty hot to me!

A fine deal, especially given the summer timing. Definitely not a mistake fare.

I believe you mean EI and not IE in terms of who is operating the flights. I would expect that the two airlines are calculating a certain element of this fare very differently, although I won't say anything further.

Well that's a nebulous and intriguing response!

Thanks for posting. While I dont think it meets the requirements for a MR it could be useful for someone wanting to go to DUB.

Neither non-stop or lie-flat, but B6-coded FI "business class" flights via KEF to a variety of other European destinations (e.g. FRA, BER) are available from US$1,650 next summer as well.

FI isn't really a "business class" but much more like a Premium Economy on most other airlines. If I look for lie-flat on transatlantic flights I have to exclude and FI and S4 as they almost always come up as the lowest bidder. Annoyingly B6 muddies the waters further as they co-market with both lie-flat and non lie-flat airrlines.

Agreed, my wording may not have been clear, I edited it now. The point was that if someone was interested in flying the TATL FI "business" product, booking it as B6 code-share would save some money compared to booking it as FI coded flights, the same behavior as for the B6 vs. EI coded JFK-DUB flights mentioned by the OP.

Am I missing something? Jetblue is selling Icelander's tickets as cide-share?
