Issues with SV's posted price and actual

does anyone know of a workaround or way to get Saudi Airline's website to match the advertised price vs ticketed price?


I'm trying to book ($2682) the Jan 23 - Feb 27th ticket, but when I go into it, it prices to the fare underneath $3246. I've tried calling their cust svc, but got nowhere.

thx

Have you tried putting in more effort instead of asking everyone here? The calendar is cached so the underlying fare is sold out.

yes i had tried diff dates and the similar thing happens, prices to the higher fare. tried calling cust svc twice but that didn't help. i thought i could ask the board, who usually know work arounds.

but thank you for pointing out it's sold out, that would explain it.

This is not a fare deal. You probably just triggered notifications for thousands of users. Please use the appropriate forum next time.

Better to educate quickly than have people page thousands of users over and over again.

I'm puzzled. I see that the columns are dates. What are the rows?

The rows will also be dates. Saudia puts the date column on the right-hand side, but the price is based on "departure date above, return date on the right" and where they intersect is the offered fare.
