DDMS IconNever Miss Another Deal - Follow DansDeals on Facebook

Update #2, 3:15pm: I think it’s safe to say that this deal is now dead.

So, how many of you booked a ticket like this? Has anyone ever seen such a cheap ticket to Israel for Pesach before? Just $336!

 

Update: Not working well on Orbitz now, but I just booked a ticket on Expedia! Expedia tickets are cancellable until 11:59pm PDT the day after ticketing!

Bookable on Orbitz (with full mileage earning, free cancellations until 10pm CT the day after you book, and price assurance refunds) or direct from the airline.

Routing is on Swiss from JFK to Zurich and on El Al from Zurich to Tel Aviv.

Valid for outbound travel between 10/28 and 03/19.

I booked two tix for the insane price! Dan will we be charged a fuel surcharge at the airport?

“It was only via Europe with American code shares and was halted within 3-hours
The sales office advised all agents that called to verify that clients may need to pay the fuel surcharge $300-each way upon departure.”

@bostonbali: Cheaptickets is not an airline. They generally can’t kill a deal on their own, although perhaps they could notify the airline if they wanted to.

But still, never a good idea to call…

A

I tried booking around 1:48 but it kept saying sold out or unavailable on each flight. We were planning on flying this winter regardless. Now it’ll be tough buying a ticket for $900 when they were just $337……….. 🙁

Is Mo correct about “You wil be charged fuel charge at the airport. Beware! ” I booked and dont want to have to pay more!

Steveo

Looks like they are all gone, expedia goes straight to $919

Adam

I just called El-Al…
The lady said that there was a glitch, the tickets were published without the normal fuel surcharge, but that they will still be honored at the price paid. I repeat (according to the woman at ElAl taht I spoke to) NO additional fee will be collected at the airport. She said the glitch has been fixed, and any changes made to flights will be charged a fee plus the price difference, which for most people will probably be astronomical.
But again, there was some kind of glitch that ElAl will be honoring. In her words- “A lot of our cutsomers got very lucky today.”

DL

Can people please write what dates they are being successful with? That would really be helpful. Thanks.

Adam

@Rivka: @Rivka: You will not be charged additional fees

bigman

@wow: yes i will.

JoeShmoe

I booked 2 round trip tickets Feb 3 – Feb 12 for $806!! So excited!!! Thanx Dan!!!

want a ticket

I understand that many people booked many tickets, knowing they can be cancelled before midnight tonight. Does anyone know Elal’s policy about changing the name on a ticket. Obviously there will be a fee, but if that’s possible, I’m sure there are many people who would like to take the “extras” of those planning to cancel later. Please advise.

abe

somebody told me to ask a rabbi if its not stealing from a yid
because al el will loss money on each ticket

mr

does anyone know if it is still available and if yes, which dates?

Cheapest I can find on CheapTickets.com now is $876 for first week of November, There are a few flights for $918 in Dec, there are some tickets for $922, other than that all $1000+

Was this a glitch or a legit sale?

David

Where is everyone still finding these? Don’t be selfish—share the site name!!

JLO

What’s the secret? I am not finding the prices and so are lots of others….are these prices without taxes, without fuel surcharge???

jj

how do i always miss these things!!!!

JLO

What’s the secret? I am not finding the prices and so are lots of others….are these prices without taxes, without fuel surcharge??? Do you need to depart on a certain day?

Which site did the last person book on?

Thank you Adam - 253

Thank you Adam – 253 for screwing it up for all of us unlucky people. Some times you have to learn to keep your mouth shut.

@JoeShmoe: on what website?

why is noone stating where they are getting tkts
from?

@abe: I imagine tens of thousands of tickets were sold for about $0. This situation is rife with deep ethical implications.

Still working

1) Use to select the dates with low fares http://www.fly.com/FlyWidgets/LowFareCalendar.aspx?Origin=NYC&Destination=TLV&StartDate=11/01/2012&EndDate=02/28/2013&amt=337&cur=USD

2) select to search cheapo air they are still coming up with cheap price

how can i book a ticket to israel?

wow

@bigman: Kaddish?

Yehuda

@Adam: I find it hard to believe she really knew what she was talking about. The Desk agents usually don’t have that kind of info.

It will take at lease *some* time for them to calculate their losses. I imagine it is astronomical.

It is sad and ironic that the Jewish community may have just bankrupted (close to that) the Israeli National Airline.

Additionally, It strikes me as suspicious how many of these ‘mistake’ fares have been happening recently. It seems like there could be targeted hacking attempts against large corporations, especially those wanting to attack Jewish companies. We know the arabs have been hacking large Israeli firms regularly and often.

JoeShmoe

@Ed: I booked it at about 12:30 DST on expedia.com

Dovy

I love how some people are always busy calling the airlines and agents to make sure 100 different things. if you need to do that, these things arent for you, and you only mess up for others. I dont understand what makes people ruin it for the others.

David

I only found some Russian airline for $433

Adam

@Thank you Adam – 253: No, mabe you misunderstood… I did not single-handedly alert the airline of this glith. I appriciate the confidence you have in me though. I merely tried to find out what exactly happened. And thus I posted… Don’t be bitter if it didn’t work out for you

milechazzer

I think it’s unfair that people are taking advantage of these airlines by booking tickets at prices that might be a mistake. And these are probably all of the same no-good people who tried to take advantage of United a couple of weeks ago.

From now on, I think I’m going to call the airline before I book any tickets, just to make sure they are completely comfortable with me booking the posted fare 😉
That way, they’ll have every opportunity to change their minds, and I can sleep soundly knowing that I offered the airline an opportunity to correct their mistake, even though they never cut me any slack if I make a mistake.

sol

k-so i actually got them 2 switch name on 1 of mine to a friend for FREE!! but that’s not policy. and officially they are non-changeable/refundable from EL-AL so good luck,but if u r smart and determined you might b able 2 pull off ..

and can anyone who has extra tickets that’s planning on cancelling post on the forum, so people can perhaps be in touch, and buy the ticket from you – hey, you can even make money and sell it for more than you bought!!

Great Great job!

I’m hearing a lot of things from people. Someone said El Al told them it wasn’t a mistake and they’d be honoured. Another person said it was a mistake but they’ll honour it. Another person said they’ve already been refunded..

I’ve tried calling the NY office 3 times and every single time I get disconnected.

Booked 2 txt for $369 via Expedia 4 hours ago for Nov 1 till Nov 14. Thought I’d get a 3rd for my son. Too late. now Expedia want over a $1,000.00

@shlomo:
I assume your referring to the feedburner email that generates automatically at 3 every day. Assuming thats it, its out of Dans control. There is no email automatically telling people when a new deal is posted. If you want, you can follow Dan on twitter or Facebook. You can also check the site a thousand times a day 🙂

@Yehuda: Did u ever consider that it’s the airline itself to generate interest or u gotta be so negative

got 2 adults 1 child from 19th march- 9 april (350$) (a bit late.. but i was very pressured and didnt bother checking april 4 lol) n than i got 2 adults 20th march-april 4 (500$) but didnt have where to put the infant into- so its missing an infant and now they wanna charge me 200$ for the infant.. i didnt do anything yet im still brainstorming how to get an infant on for cheaper.. but yay! thanks

@Sara: Which site did you book with? In your case should not be to hard to explain the issue and ask them to honor. They will have to contact Elal to get approval but I would think they will go along. Keep trying if wont work with 1 rep try another!!! If your husband entered correct than they should definitely feel compelled to change & even if not explain the issue and dont let up-they went 2 superiors etc till went thru..

@david: Would try to tell them that the names were entered wrong etc. NO ACHRIUS! will tell you tat they will need to go thru el-al and wont be easy ..in my case was booked by me for me so easy 2 explain the mistake..

Askan

All you people who missed the deal- why don’t you get all dansdeals tweets?? Don’t choose not to be informed and then come crying!! Your right not every tweet is relevant, it’s still 100% worth getting them

truly nowhere

I honestly DON’T see why everyone is in a 2nd hand market frenzy over these cheap tickets. The chances of having the names changed on tickets that were accidentally sold at a huge loss is little to none. There have already been repeated reports that elal will not change these tickets. And why should they? They have absolutely no obligation to and they KNOW exactly what people are up to; buying a large number of cancellable
tickets and trying to sell and transfer the ones they don’t want

sol

@Sara:email me @ sollybgood@gmail.com can try..no promises

Rob

@dansdeals like your site but you have some of the least informed readership of all deal sites. People calling the airline and orbitz to see if it’s mistake before its dead. People calling to add an infant before its dead. Bad idea, alerts the airline. Just buy an extra seat it’s so cheap. Anyway can you from now on put a disclaimer on your fare mistakes etc that says DO NOT CALL

Also for everyone else how do you know you can name change to a totally different person? Seems unlikely to me.

Queensdealman

I got tickets 11/21-12/2 thanksgiving week for 420…… If any1has extra pls let me know so I can purchase for the dates from you

I need to call and add a lap seat for a one year old- did anyone have any luck getting the 10% from the original flight price or 10% of what it is right now?

MarkS

Alright guys, sorry to burst you bubbles but: A)Names on tickets can’t be changed B)In the event that you somehow convince them to change the name, they will make you pay up to the current price of a ticket –as they are reissuing it. Therefore, you don’t end up gaining anything and might as well just book a ticket yourself on elal.com for that price. C)If you didn’t already add your infant, call Elal and tell them that you need to add an infant. They will probably charge you around $125 (10% of current ticket prices). D) I repeat, names on tickets can’t be changed E) Just because a whole bunch of misinformed commenters assumed that you can change the name, rules A and D still apply. F) Probably not a smart idea to post your phone number and email addresses online like that. Spammers just love digging up phone numbers and email addresses to send junk to G) Reread rules A,D & E! YOU CANT CHANGE THE NAMES! I don’t care how much you’re willing to pay, how badly your wife needs a vacation, how many minutes you missed the deal by, or how happy your family in Israel that you haven’t seen in thirty years will be. NAMES CANT BE CHANGED!!

@Rob: @truly nowhere: @yitz: You guys are incredible, you rip off your own airline , did you think workers might be fired or laid off etc, and you worry about kohanim?

@ez:
EZ – you’re a fool if you think that alerting airlines and travel agencies doesn’t get deals like this shut down prematurely.
I’ve witnessed dozens of mistake fares through FT. Those that fly under the radar last a lot longer than those mistake fares where somebody calls the airline/travel agency and makes them aware of it.
Golden rule is don’t call until the deal is long gone, so that others have a chance to book it! Be’hatzlacha.

Hey, the deal is dead, did they say that today? Last I heard, them honoring these was still up in the air

Thanks for your patience. Details/ decisions re incorrect fares that were briefly sold on Monday are not finalized. We will update tomorrow.

@LWG:

You SHOULD be able to fly if you bring a copy of your marriage certificate showing the maiden name under which the tickets were purchased, and your married name, which appears on your passport.

I recall reading about this sort of a situation before, probably on Flyertalk.
