PRICING MISTAKE: 4 miles from Hong Kong
« on: July 15, 2012, 11:57:24 AM »
See Gary's post for more details, but they're charging 4 miles each way for many flights originating in Hong Kong. I just priced from there to TLV for 4 miles per person plus a few fees.
No idea how to leverage it, but I'm open to ideas :)

They're allowing me to book to HKG from TLV for 4 miles per person, and low taxes. Think I should put a hold on it, or just pay now and accept the uncertainty?
