Update 2: Qantas has quietly announced that they will be honoring these fares!

It’s an interesting test case, as this is one of the first widespread price mistakes since the DoT announced that they will no longer be forcing airlines to honor price mistakes.

Is it out of goodwill? Is it the realization that honoring these fares would be cheaper than having to pay for people’s non-refundable travel plans that may have been booked based on the assumption that these fares would be honored? Or is it that the DoT hasn’t fully rescinded their rule yet?

Michael

They have taken down these cheap prices. Was definitely an error.
Thanks Dan

eva

Is this deal over?

FlightBlitz

Good morning aussies! Congrats to all those that booked, now to wait and see if they’ll be honored.
Many Ticket numbers were already received, and as this is not an “error” fare but a correct fare without YQ, high chance it WILL be honored.

R

Thank you, Dan! This was unreal!

Anonymous

when do we find out if they’ll be honoured? i’ve got other plans i need to act on

third day of sale

@Michael: A good Sale not an error. Deal was on other websites for the past three days already with UA.

Anon

It looks like all tickets will be cancelled…
Posted by official Qantas rep: ‘An update for you savvy AFFers celebrating Xmas in July with these mistake fares: they’re not valid and have been removed from sale. We’re currently following up affected bookings.’

Shai

Has anyone else seen this remark from an “officialQantas rep” thank you anon for posting really trustworthy… ? Dan how long does it usually taketo know if all good to go?

Rachel

Does this mean I can no longer book these rates?

Raizy

Anonymous- I found returns with only one stop for this price

DL

Lucky me, didnt go thru booking and being cancelled. after following 2 previous deals (UA) and Hotels at dead sea which were cancelled, it seems that going for “deals” is not a good use of ones time. (or values(

Dan

Nothing has been cancelled yet.
I can even count the number of price mistakes I’ve had honored.

Boroch

I booked from Mel to lax, can I buy a ticket on the quantas flight from la to JFK ?
Also can I change the return flight date ?
Thanks ?

JK

Any update on whether these bookings will be honored?

Shai

@DL: Not a smart comment… literally doesn’y hurt to book a ticket you needed anyways even if slight chance might not be honored

Nathan

Tix WILL BE GOOD!

Qantas

Qantas has indicated that they will honour the tickets. Check Qantas official twitter account for more information.

curious

has the qantas transaction posted to your credit card, either to pending or actually gone through?

Aerial dag

all I know is that I’m glad you and other bloggers have stopped writing “price mistake” in the titles. Better chance of getting honored, especially since they used your previous post as evidence to the DOT of people taking advantage of their mistakes.
