Errors on AC 21 Sept one day sale and fall sale to Europe

I think someone had too much to drink while proofing this. Promos on AC home page today.
YYZ-ATH $270 round trip in Y 11-14 Sept.
And from the 21 Aug one day sale.
YYZ-SCL return $313. 08-11 Sept
I'd like to buy these fares but obviously cannot.

Don't be silly, drinking had nothing to do with it. Well, maybe nothing.

How many times have we found errors on these AC promos? While the pricing one you found is a fun one, I also like the ones where they announce a holiday promos but copy & paste the info from last year so the dates don't match. I think AC broke their spell-check and the proofreaders quit, because how else does this stuff get posted on their website?


This one is still showing, but of course, "bait and switch" LOLL


Wow, what a deal and not even a same-day turn.




Click Book Now and well, sure, maybe this price makes more sense but that's not the reason I clicked Book Now.

But ok, I'll play and select Economy for $996 (why do I feel like this is a game show?)




And there you go, nowhere.

And why would I enter alternate travel sates when AC suggested Sept 20-22 in the first place.





Yes, I was bored.

And speaking of drinking, the title of this thread notes a sale on 21 September, but it's August 21 today.

too bad these misleading sales do not seem to be to/from USA

otherwise AC would be fined $200k plus by the DOT

The link didn't work for me, so I'm going to try quoting it.
