  • Cheap Airfares

    2. Cheap Airfares



    The stories of members receiving cut-price airfares due to technological glitches have become somewhat of an urban flying myth. However this week our members reveal some of their best bargains and some handy tricks to ensure you take advantage of any glitch!

    One member reports that they managed to get flights for two from Europe to Australia upgraded from J to F for no points. However, the website which this glitch was discovered on is a closely guarded secret. Our members recommend acting on any discovered glitch immediately as often the loopholes are quickly picked up by scrupulous airlines. Calling the airline to check if the fare is correct will usually result in automatic rectification of the glitch in question and a potential bargain quickly evaporating.

    Another member warns that if something appears too good to be true, sometimes it can be! The airline may fail to honour the ticket if it was purchased as a result of a technical fault and this can result in becoming embroiled in argument with the issuing airline. If a number of fares were purchased as a result of a glitch then it is, in our memberís experience, more likely that the airline will identify the glitch and act to recoup their loss. Another handy hint is to take a screen-shot of the fare to allow support for your case if the issuer or airline queries the ticket.

    guilty here and good point

    Just have to think that QF fully expect the relatively small number of folks, such as us, to make the most of it, while the vast majority to not really. Maybe book a few...
