I agree, and this is the point I was trying to make

I just thought it was a good sale - mines gone too - ahhh well.

I've no doubt that EZY, by way of example, likely had a fare for similar money.

However, I've never seen BA fares to TLV at the £200 level - cheapest is around £300 in my experience (with El Al priced slightly more)

That being said, the £100 difference is not enormous.

My sole interest in this thread, is the path that error fares tend to follow, especially as this isn't BAs first Manifest Error fare.

A couple of years ago, I had a BA flight to TLV for £240 which is not far off the £197.00 I paid this time around via Omega Travel.

I got an automatic email from them saying that there has been a schedule change and that I should contact them as soon as possible........

Mine have also disappeared from MMB, but no notification from anyone...

Might put up a bit of an effort to fight for it - seems more arguable than most...

... although interestingly, the booking is still live on Netflights. I can still download the invoice and ticket voucher.

Same here, nothing from them at all telling me I've been bumped.

Netflights are the OTA, and as far as they are concerned, I might not contact the Airline until the day I arrive at the airport to check in. I hope they do contact me, the courtesy would be nice.

The small print probably says that you have to reconfirm with the airline 72 hours before (not sure about Netflights, but that's what a lot of OTAs do). I wonder what would happen at that point...
