It’s a promotion they are running for whatever reason.

Either crashes or shows the normal prices. Could be an interesting afternoon!

Surely they haven't sold 50,000 tickets already! My guess is that they pulled the fare because the server couldn't cope.

And if by a miracle you manage to select flights, the payment screen will show a negative amount and you are stuffed there - at least that's what happened when i tried. Now the website is down altogether.

I think they just screwed up their website because news has got around and people will be hitting that site for days. Just started an airline and the website is virtually useless. Way to go IAG!

Website went down halfway through booking for me, but successfully got there using the mobile app. Bagged a 2p return LGW-VIE in September.

Now let's hope for some EU261 relevant delays!

Apparently sold out! How did they manage to sell 50,000 seats when the website was down for most of the time!?

Probably didn’t, they undoubtedly spent many resources trying to repair and keep the website going. Maybe the crap IT suited them so they didn’t have to sell too many seats at that ridiculous low price, on the other hand maybe there will be another offer very soon to make up for this one flopping somewhat. Thanks to headingwest​​​​​​​ for pointing me back to this thread.

I wonder if it might eventually go the way of Transavia in Munich. That wasn’t exactly a success story, was it? What with easyJet and Eurowings Europe not to mention OS, does Vienna really need this carrier?
