Flight Pricing Mistakes
May 22, 2007 11:05 AM   Subscribe

Trying to find a website that publicizes airline's online mistakes in terms of pricing, giving you very cheap flights.

I thought the MeFi community may have already posted about this, but a search yielded no results. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

Pricing mistakes, when they do happen, generally get posted quickly to Flyertalk's Mileage Run forum.

Are you thinking of FareAlert? I'm on their list, but haven't actually received that many alerts.

I got a tremendous fare last year on Virgin Airlines thanks to airfarewatchdog.com -- sign up for their newsletter, and keep your eyes peeled.

I told a colleague about the blooper fare, and he scored a August trip to LHR from SFO for less than $600 r/t.

I've never seen such perfectionism from a potsmokinghippieoverlord!

My friend Jon is "JonNYC" in this legendary FlyerTalk thread - he bought $28,000 worth of first-class tickets for $2,800 the night Travelocity misplaced a decimal point in the dollar value of the French Polynesian franc. He's still using those tickets...
