Website bugs

I realise that regulars know Emirates' website is full of bugs and they're mentioned in various threads, but thought this deserved a place of its own. Can you spot the issues?

Is this 2020?

not to be too sympathetic to crap airline websites but I imagine leap years are relatively tricky to code for

Not really, the image is pretty low res. The fact you can fly out the 28th and return the 29th? Or that the 29th is missing as an option on the outbound?

Passing off 2167 as a business 'saver' is an issue

Looks like the leap year date has confused the res system!

Here's hopefully a better image. No outbound option on Saturday 29th February and no inbound on Sunday 1st March.

Is that a bug or is there no combination of flights available on those days? The calendar at least shows the 29th

Yes it's a bug. The matrix always shows all dates and you get Not Applicable or Not Available shown if required. If I try to book for departure 29th Feb and return 1st March without using the +/- 3 day search I can do it.
