United Airlines says people will get to fly on the $0 tickets it sold by mistake


 

United Airlines says it will honour the tickets it accidentally gave away for free.

The decision is good news for people who snapped up the tickets on Thursday after United accidentally listed airfares at $0. Many customers got their tickets for $5 or $10, paying only the cost of the Sept. 11 security fee.

Airlines have posted so-called “mistake fares” before. Airlines generally decide on a case-by-case basis whether they’ll honour the ticket.

United isn’t saying how many tickets it accidentally gave away, or how much the mistake cost. The wrong fares were available on its website for a few hours on Thursday. It eventually shut down bookings on its website until it could fix the problem.

  1. FFS, flying on United Airlines should be free — worst airline I have ever travelled with. Just awful –crowded, broken chairs and table tops, stuffed in like cattle cars — old old planes superstuffed with extra seats to make more money.

    • Watch, they will strand the people somewhere like they did to me in Chicago once.
