Reservations Snafu or Early Xmas Gift?

I've never flown Independence Air before although I am subscribed to its e-mail service and I have visited the Web site a few times.

Recently, I was looking for airfares and checked the Flyi Web site for flights departing IAD, but never went beyond the fare display screen.

A few hours later, I received a reservation confirmation e-mail from Independence Air departing out of one of its east coast cities to LAS via IAD. The reservation has my name and address, but the fare is $0.00. Seats were even assigned.

Any thoughts?

I looked at DH's CoC and they don't prohibit hidden-city ticketing so I guess technically I *could* show up at IAD to take the second leg of the flight, but not sure I would feel right doing it. The flights are at the end of December so it would be taking a gamble anyway. I have no idea how this could have happened though!

You are dealing with DH, they have fair screw ups and promo glitches all the time. A couple months ago there was an error and people were able to book $0 tickets, the airline honored them.

I figured it was a glitch, but in every other glitch I've heard about, people learned about the glitch and booked the reservations themselves. DH booked it for me without me doing anything.
