    Hi there,

    I would like to know how would I be notified if there is an error on a airline web site?

    Thanks!

    Unless you have a friend who will notify you, you need to keep checking different blog sights as they are usually posted. If you get one, be quick as they don't last for long.

    The biggest and best thing to have is a network of friends as Marc has pointed out. Even with a great network of friends some things will still pass through your grasp but you just move on and wait for the next great deal that will inevitably come.

    I don't believe in mistakes.

    Unfortunately, neither do the airlines. As @marcwint55 said, better act fast if you see one as they won't be there for long!

    They believe in mistakes, they just don't believe they ever make them. :D

    The question remains, will they honor their mistakes?

    many of them are required by law to be honored

    I was one of the very FORTUNATE few that were able to book the Delta Hawaii mistake recently. My husband and I both booked RT airfare to Hawaii for 240.

    We were planning to go to Hawaii anyway, so the ONLY reason we got lucky is because we both check flights daily for trips we plan on taking, and that is how we got soo lucky. We were already looking for the trip and hoping to find one of the rare 700 fares that sometimes we see out of IAH.

    Yes Delta honored it. We had to change our dates but for 120 fare... why wouldn't we? lol

    Fortunate Few? Not around here or on FT. I know people who between them have over 100 tickets. :)

    Personally, I'd recommend crediting DL flights to AS (Alaska Airlines).
