1 way Paris to Dublin in August $103 on Aer Lingus good deal?

I'm pretty sure I know that the answer to this is yes, but since August is a ways off I thought I would throw the question out there. I will need four 1 way tickets Paris - Dublin on a Saturday in August. I prefer to not use Ryanair out of Beauvais, but rather fly from CDG. Aer Lingus is $103 w/o checked bags and $126 each for the two of us who will have 1 checked bag each.

Should I just book these tickets now since I'm certain of our travel date or am I likely to get a much better deal closer in?

Thanks!

You should book it now. It's a pretty good deal for high season.
Unlike Ryanair, AerLingus rarely /never has massive discount sales for high season flights. Your quote would already count as a good low fare deal in comparison to what you can pay when you wait too long from intra European flights with EI.

I agree. Looks like an excellent fare to me ( especially if that includes taxes and administration fees).

I am about to buy a one way fare from paris to cork on AL for mid may at $83. i doubt it will be any lower and there is no competition to speak of for that route.

Easyjet only flies into / out of Belfast, so this is your best bet.

One caveat, the price they're charging on checked luggage.

Another reason to always travel light and carry on everything

Check size and weight limits for intra EU flights with Aer Lingus before you decide to travel carry-on only.

I did end up booking 4 tickets on Aer Lingus last night. Price had dropped a dollar $102 for the two of us w/o checked bags. The other two tickets were another 20E to include a checked bag. I opted to pay 5E more per ticket to select seats in advance.

I was not sure what to do about the "guaranteed rate exchange" option, but decided against it and choose to pay in Euro.
