Im on the hunt for a cheap ticket....how do I get in on the next system glitch?
Plenty of cheap tickets out there.
Yoda, "Patience you must have, my young Padawan".
Patience and paying close attention to twitter, Milepoint and Flyertalk. Could happen at any time and be done in an instant! It also helps to be search for a flight the moment it happen like my brother did in December with the Delta glitch haha
Pay your dues by contributing to the community and you'll learn about these Misteak Fares.
You could run millions of automated searches on ITA Matrix 24/7, and create yourself some kind of alert that tells you when fares between certain cities are below $x price, but you'd have to create that module yourself.
No secret handshakes, reverse hugs, codes and stuff?
I would think when a mistake fare happens, those in the know would be busy searching for their flights and have no time to "share".
What's more, sharing publicly risk the airline realising and shutting the whole thing down?
I do not think I will ever be fortunate enough to be at the right place at the right time but I am happy for those who got the tickets during the Delta glitch.
Delta did put an additional layer now to mitigate such future mistakes.
Redeemable miles in 2015 are tied to ticker prices.
We will not get to punish (rip) them off twice on a same mistake
... after it is over?
Cheap and not Mistake fares right...
Good sources are:
Milepoint doesn't seem to have the traction on things like this, unless people are talking about them in some huge thread about random crap? (If they do I wouldn't know.)
You might be able to find lower priced flights via:
also sometimes a boarding area blogger may mention a good deal
Additionally there are blogs and sites in other countries which may find more global opportunities. Sometimes people pick up things in German blogs and post them to flyer talk. I've seen ok deals on http://www.holidaypirates.com/ which is UK based.
I think people do share deals off the forums but I've not involved. Also I think do the random nature of how wonderful opportunities are found its very common that some random Joe finds the deal first. A lot of time those random finds are what ends up on flyertalk or on a blog.
Even if you check these sites you will miss deals. I read stuff all the time and completely missed out on the Delta deal...
