Easy to offer a $99 cap when there are no flights for sale.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Such a farce. As soon as this article came out I was searching for my grandparents and there was one flight available through Boston on Friday night for 160 with one seat left.

Untrue - they had seats available, and some of my relatives have gotten $99 flight for today. They were just sold out quickly.

There were many with only 1 seat left at $99, but it errors out when you move on to put in passenger info.

They can only fly so many flights out of those airports, what exactly do you want out of them?

They advertised $99 after they already sold out all of their flights at much higher prices when people complained about the prices.
They sold a few straggling seats for $99.

They said they added more flights too, is that untrue?

Any potential arbitrage situation will be taken advantage of until no longer available, if it's known that the demand outstrips quantity at the available price.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

I didn't see anything but random single seats left even before that announced it. They announced it because of bad PR and because they had almost zero inventory left.
Yes, a few people got lucky. But this was for a miniscule amount of seats.
