The latest ‘victim’ of a computer glitch is Delta Airlines who had a roughly two hour period on December 26th where savvy travelers were getting some serious bargains. The New York Times reported:
Some lucky fliers capitalized on a computer error Thursday to buy inexpensive flights on Delta Air Lines.
From about 10 a.m. to noon Eastern, certain Delta fares on the airline’s website and other booking sites were showing up incorrectly, offering some savvy bargain hunters incredible deals.
A round-trip flight between Cincinnati and Minneapolis for February was being sold for just $25.05 and a round trip between Cincinnati and Salt Lake City for $48.41. The correct price for both of those fares is more than $400.
