Cathay Pacific Will Honor $16K Tickets Sold for $675

Cathay Pacific Accidentally Sells $16,000 Premium Airline Seats For $675

In a tweet the company admitted the mistake and said they "look forward to seeing you on board with your ticket issued".

Cathay Pacific has promised to honour discounted first class and business class flights which were mistakenly sold at a fraction of their true value.

Mr Gary Leff, a travel and loyalty-programme blogger on View From The Wing, wrote on Monday that the Cathay business-class round trip from Da Nang to NY started at US$675 for travel in August. Sign-up now and enjoy one (1) week free access!

In 2014 Singapore Airlines agreed to honor some 400 business class flights to Australia sold at economy prices.

Last summer, a similar situation happened with Hong Kong Airlines when business class tickets were sold for $587, much lower than the usual price of $3,800.

"You can fly from Vietnam - the cheapest fares originate in Da Nang, but other cities work as well - to Cathay Pacific's USA gateways starting at $US675".

Hong Kong newspaper The South China Morning Post spoke to 11 people who had bought 18 first class and eight business class tickets totalling HK$216,925 (US$27,692).

Air Canada is now involved in a class action lawsuit at home for refusing to honor a similar price mistake in 2015. The first-class ticket to Hong Kong alone would have been thousands of dollars with the normal price. "Hope this will make your 2019 'special" too!

In October'18, the airlines made another big gaffe after the personal details including contact number, passport details of 9.4mn passengers in the world were hacked through their system.

The bargain fares were sold on a route from the Vietnamese city of Da Nang to NY.

"I thought, this has got to be either a once in a lifetime deal, or possibly a mistaken fare, possibly both", he told the BBC.

In an update in November a year ago, the company said it was working with 27 regulators in 15 jurisdictions to investigate the data breach.
