I switched browsers (Firefox to Chrome) and found identical flights with identical fare codes. After clicking "Purchase Now", the same error "We're sorry. The fare for the flights you selected just sold out. Please search again to view and select alternate flights. #3006R" is shown.

It's an L-fare on an MD88 5+ weeks out. The seat map shows the plane is 60% empty.

IT bug? Anything I'm doing wrong?
While it is possible the fare really sold out, it could, in fact, be a bug. You can usually call in and get it booked (with fees waived) if there really is availability.

I've had this happen a time or two. It shouldn't be so difficult to give a company money.
