Delta to honor cheap flights sold in systems glitch

2013-12-30 11:29

New York - Delta Air Lines said Friday it would honor tickets sold at a fraction of their normal price because of computer glitch that afflicted the airline's website the prior day.

"For a portion of the morning yesterday, some prices on and other booking channels were incorrectly displayed, resulting in lower than usual fares for customers," said Delta spokesperson Trebor Banstetter.

"The situation has been resolved and the correct prices are being displayed."

Banstetter said Delta "will honor any fares purchased at the incorrect price."

Press reports chronicled almost comically low fares, such as a round-trip ticket between New York and Los Angeles for $25 and a round-trip voyage between Baltimore and Honolulu for less than $100.
