In fact, it's only a couple of threads under yours.

As usual someone didn't bother to read properly

My post is an error fare at $589
Yours is a typical $1500

$580 is considerably less than $1,500

Thanks for posting this, but TAP will not honor and the OTA looks kinda fishy..

Good luck!

No need to be defensive. It's simply better to keep posts on the same subject within the same thread.

Tried a couple but none worked. Some of these dates from SF didn't open to the correct (or mistake) fare either.

Well, it's not like it would be honored anyways... Moving on!

when the new fare is available/ appears to be available via ota or whatever, for less than half of the original thread, it deserves a new thread IMO.

So I'm not missing anything?
Currently boarding a flight, network issues, tried it on business-class but didn't work.

Any other OTAs to try?

Seems to be the only OTA offering this price, which makes it extra unlikely to be honored.

There are a couple, but none of them works. Looks like YQ is left off which gets caught in the validation step

Agreed, plus there's a rather considerable difference between a more or less average TAP fare (e.g. the ones to RAI) versus an obvious mistake fare that would otherwise be an incredible deal (assuming it was both bookable and not cancelled as a mistake fare). A $1,500 fare isn't enough to convince me to jump, but $590 for that much Star Alliance mileage is another story. I'm also an optimist on these things, given that FT is where I found my best error fare ever (among ones not cancelled): one-way international F from DXB to AUS, of all routes, for $600. While this thread should probably be closed (or the subject line changed to indicate a dead fare) if the fare's entirely impossible to book, and it's simply a coincidence that it matches the admittedly unusual BOS-RAI city pairing, I'd still argue they merit separation.
