  • HX: We disagree; it was an error.
  • DOT: Sorry, we think it was legitimate.
  • HX: But look! Some people on an internet forum called it an error!
  • DOT: <gasps> Well I'll be! Since everything on the internet must be true, and since the term "error fare" is so well defined, that settles it; you're off the hook.
Whether the fare will be honored or not, I have no idea, but I'm entirely confident that comments made on this board will play no role whatsoever in that decision.

Then you two have not been paying attention. UA used FT to get them out of the big DKK deal and that was what lead to the new rules regarding "mistake fares"

https://liveandletsfly.boardingarea....-mistake-fare/

An airline still has the burden of proof that a fare is a mistake. You know the easiest way to prove its a mistake? Show the DOT blogs and FT posts saying its mistake. "See, they knew it was a too good to be real."

Yup. I suspect there will be some panicked meetings in the morning...

Just realized the one i'm trying to cancel doesn't have a ticket number yet, so that is probably why i can't cancel it yet. Not worried about it though. Thank you.

For those booking on Priceline, check the cabin carefully, it may direct you to economy and of course the fares will pop up easily. Anyway, I'm glad what I got on Expedia and will keep it that way if it sticks.

burden of proof is as simple as them saying an agent fat fingered a fare and showing comparable prices.

and please, we don't need any "evidence" from the same scam artist who booked a $10k first class swiss F in cash just so he could sue aeroplan for opening award seats.

Strange. HK site is showing no availability or crazy high fares now.
