It only lasted about 15-30 minutes before shutting down.

I was surprised no FWers were not more keen on this (i.e. that it took this long to show up).

Last I read they were still considering canceling those tickets and not honoring them.

  kind of and not ... this is a pricing system mistake and not an individual account.  Just like if you went to the mall and bought a shirt that was priced at $1 but was supposed to be $10.

United honored all of the tickets that were purchased as part of this error.

I was looking at tickets on United about an hour too early. F***.

It is if you make a withdraw. Then a bank's mistake becomes the bank's problem.

Thanks for the info, bad for the company good for the consumers :}

They should honor the roundtrip fares, however the one guy that booked 14 and counting should get 13 and counting cancelled.

They will make it up with fees, I'm sure.

At $1 for a t-shirt, one could possibly argue that there was ample consideration.  At $0 for a plane ticket, I don't think so.  If they honor it... great, good for them.

  Do you have definitive experience with that? I heard a case where bank double counted $1000 deposit, customer withdrew, bank later showed $1000 negative balance, made a few letter demands, closed the relationship and reported to Chexsystems

This sounds to me like an "accidental" error that now EVERYONE is talking about. Nice marketing UA.

  I disagree; as they are honoring this one. The one from Avis earlier this year was the despicable one

Some guys have already completed quick turns and some are flying today on these tix. Safe travels to all.

If an airline changes the price after booking, can they be charged a change fee?

No. Airlines change their prices constantly. Once you are purchased and ticketed, you are done.

The big question is how did FW miss this while it was active! FW members would have booked every ticket for a year.
