Cheap airline tickets were too good to be true8/8/2012
Thanks to a little thing called the Internet, a 3-hour mistake could mean big losses for an airline that accidently posted round-trip tickets between New York and Israel for $400 Monday. The tickets usually cost around $1,600, and even though the significantly lower price was only up for a few hours, 5,000 tickets had been snatched up as Orthodox Jews tried to score airfare for every member of their families — even their unborn children. Word about the cheap tickets spread quickly on Facebook and Twitter after a deal website sent out member alerts. The airline, El Al, blames a contractor (it's always a contractor's fault) for the erroneous posting and there's no word yet on if they’ll honor the tickets. [Source]
Should the airline honor the mistake?
