Delta Air Lines will honour tickets sold incorrectly on its website yesterday morning.
Between 10am and noon local time (3pm – 5pm GMT) the Atlanta-based carrier was accidently displaying fares at a fraction of their normal price.
For example, local reports claimed return flights between Cincinnati and Minneapolis were being sold for only £15 when they would normally cost around £250.
A spokesman for the airline said told AP the problem was caused by a computer glitch, which was quickly fixed.
“Delta will honour any fares purchased at the incorrect price,” confirmed the spokesman.
In September United Airlines experienced a similar issue. Visitors to the website were able to buy tickets for a few pounds after files had been filed incorrectly into the system.
