just got cancelled by Qantas saying was payment issue, but I checked with credit card company and they said authorization was given, Qantas didn't charge the money, instead forced a refund.

When did you "buy" the RTW ticket? Seems like a long time for a pending transaction.

No, it wasn't an error fare. ex-CAI fares have been among the lowest OW RTWs for years, it was just 40% cheaper during this due to the currency devaluation.

They shouldn't be. It wasn't an error fare. None of thee fares posted in this thread were an error, they were just cheaper due to the devaluation of currency.

Of course not, that's why I quoted sony2012 stating that it wasn't an error fare, therefore there's no reason to expect cancellations.

Absolutely not an error fare my RTW fare booked with BA stands and absolutely no reason to expect cancellation.

Thank you for all your contributions and not disagreeing with you, but: The RGN fares about 10 years ago also resulted from a devaluation and a lot of those tickets were cancelled. That devaluation was much much higher than this one though.

Very fair point.

I got QF RTW ticket, which has already been changed twice due to some schedule adjustments. In both cases it was reissued without any problems. So a cancellation is very unlikely.

I would guess it depends on who lost money in the transaction. If the airline, then they will certainly try to recoup or cancel (depending on the size of the financial hit). It its a bank or financial institution they might not even notice it for while, if ever and then toss it out as a rounding error. Like the Argentinian Peso incident via Visa Germany last year.

Even if within the airline, if its not picked up by revenue management, chances are they'll notice this down the road.

As with many of the deals on here: Hope for the best, but expect the worst.
