While I didn't get a sub $400 fare, I did nab a ticket for $770 (and change) for my son to go to yeshiva, on what I consider superior routing and times to other options, also leaving out of my favorite NYC area airport (though in this case might not be so favorite, as I'm the one to drive him there - presumably into the airport). Combine that with the free shipping to Israel by Target, and my son's zman in Yeshiva can say some thanks to DDF and DDMS.

Google Flights had it for about $200 pp but when I went to ticket, the price dropped to about $150 pp. I thought for sure the repricing was going to mean the deal was dead but in reality, it got even better.

if you have global entry it's maybe enough, if not it's probably not enough, when I passed YYZ there was a crazy line by customs, also you normally have to wait for your bags to be pictured and wait for your name to come up on the screeen for you to be able to go to a customs agent

For my flights it's $25-$40+ per passenger per leg. So my $240+ ticket would go up to ~$300.

I booked 1 trip for 3 people, so not so bad (not that I'm gonna pay). But people traveling with 4+ pax, or booked multiple trips, those numbers really add up quick.

Also, would someone please be so kind as to clarify the process of the Toronto stopover between NYC-TelAviv? Is the luggage transferred automatically? Do you need to go through customs again? How much time should it take?

Lastly, is it worth it to pay to confirm a seat?

Not so simple,
H. Erroneous fares
(1) Air Canada reserves the right to cancel reservations and/or tickets issued with an erroneously quoted fare.
(2) An erroneously quoted fare is one which carrier has, in good faith, mistakenly published and which is clearly erroneous. When compared to fares usually published in the relevant routing.
(3) Air Canada reserves the right to void the purchased ticket and refund the amount paid by the customer or, if customer agrees to forgo the refund, offer the customer the ticket at a published fare that should have been available at time of booking.
(4) Air Canada will use reasonable efforts to notify the customer:
a) Within 72 hours after the carrier becomes aware of the publishing of an erroneous. fare, that all or any portion of their ticketed itinerary has been cancelled; or
b) At least 24 hours prior to the customerís scheduled departure from the point of origin issued on the ticket, that all or any portion of their ticketed itinerary has been cancelled, if the ticket was purchase

So if they cancel these fares at some point in the future but don't notify us after 72 hours from when the deal died then they are in violation of their own terms?

Read it again. It says they will make an effort. Not that if they don't cancel within 72 the purchase cannot be cancelled in the future. I expect since this was very high profile it'll be addressed soon, as DOT would require them to cover non refundable travel expenses.

IMO the reasonable effort refers to their method of notifying the customer. ie they will use email or phone but if their message goes to spam or your service stinks and they cannot reach you by phone, they've done a reasonable effort to notify the customer.

That seems accurate to me.

Can an argument be made that YQ is not subject to this, as it is not the fare, but rather a surcharge?

Not sure if we need to be arguing any of this, as we don't know if AC will try to void the tickets. Was there any official communication? After all, this made global news, was available on all platforms, and travel agents sold many tickets ex-TLV besides for whatever was generated by DDMS and other US based travel websites.

Spoke to rep in 100K department today about adding lap child.

A few things.

She said infant/baby for unborn/unnamed wouldn't work for international travel.

She said that there was a system glitch and they didn't charge taxes (we know ) key point is they are honoring it cause it was an error on their end.

Also from the way it sounded, they need to manually price lap child tickets because the system usually builds off the price of your ticket and your ticket won't have YQ. Should be something a few hucas can save you some cash on.

Personally she sounded like a DROPR type of rep so take it as you will.

We're waiting for the full list, though it would probably work better if @Dan had a larger family. I'd share my family birthday list, but while it's much longer than Dan's list, I doubt it would help with error fares.

Well, it's YYZ which could be a long distance hike, you also need to allow time for Canadian customs and check-in and security lines. I would say at least 2 hours or possibly 3 to keep it safe, but I will let more experienced travellers chime in. Maybe schedule an appointment for a Nexus interview while you're there, it's half the price of GE, includes GE and helps entering Canada too. Kids under 18 can get it for free.

some fare error deals you can book with points and some not? for example at least with amex the airline matters.  Also curious if every error fare shows up on chase and amex travel site with the corresponding points low amount of points?

and anyway if I remember correctly DDMS did at least in the past give instructions how to book with CSR points and Amex plat points
for a DDMS post  think a lot readers might not be remember this option nor know the nuances of booking with points and might assume incorrectly that you cannot book this error deal with points.

What fare class (this would dictate the change policy)? Likely would require a change fee + difference in fare to change date. Forget about the idea for name change, unless you have someone else that's just 1-2 letters off, then you might have some luck.

are you serious?
many viewers on DDMS I think would greatly benefit and save on points and money by knowing they have the option of booking with chase or amex points which they may not be aware of and its something relevant to this site and something he has done before.

no one is looking for help for irrelevant or inapplicable instructions beyond the parameters of this great site.

Its like defending your tax consultant even though he failed to advise you of an important new tax deduction because what do you except he cant do everything ::)

Air Canada was glitching away for me. Google flights was spitting more expensive fares than pl. (I was on mobile and one of the ways was not a glitch fare.)

IMHO the nature of these deals (ie time limited) lend themselves to the PL/Orbitz benefits of extra cancellation times. Because research time is severely hindered, it makes more sense to quickly book several itineraries and use the extra cancellation time to do your research. I've booked mistakes in the past (delta, etihad, etc) and never had an issue with 3rd parties vs directly with an airline.

Also keep in mind even with fare glitches buying for example in this case 4 tickets for a total of lets say $1200 maybe still be out of reach for some or extremely difficult for them whereas points would only cost you the taxes which may be more doable.  Thats why I thought it may be important to mention it.

Problem with people booking 5 itineraries in such a case, is when flights "artificially" sell out, and then there's only flights with 2 stops for the dates you want etc. Then all those people booking multiple itineraries, or people booking when they're 95% sure they can't go, or just in case, or even just to feel like they were able to snag a good deal, cancel their itineraries, leaving the person who actually needed those dates, with the weaker option, because he wasn't as quick as those just randomly booking. 

Not saying people shouldn't book if they have half of chance of going. But to grab multiple dates when you know you're only going to use one of them, tops, can be unfair.

Correct, you can not skip any leg of the trip and continue on later, they will cancel any remaining part of the ticket. You can try calling and asking them to switch you to a later flight but don't count on them letting you do it without the change fee and difference in fare. You may have better success in the airport on the day of the flight.

Booked BWI-YYZ-TLV, schedule change put my connection below min connection time so they rebooked me on a much earlier flight out of BWI. Will they let me change to a different flight out of DCA?

yes

Not saying people shouldn't book if they have half of chance of going. But to grab multiple dates when you know you're only going to use one of them, tops, can be unfair.
most people myself included, when taking advantage of a glich, are not exactly fair conscious.

They changed the flight to tlv by 5 minutes. If you are now 58 minutes it's less than min connection and you can change to an earlier flight. You should since as searchguy says there is no leeway.

If you're on a puddle jumper your odds of delay are higher.

Or get to airport early and try to get on earlier flight.

I canít speak for @a mirrer, but I booked my three trips on AC and was able to change the time of one of them that had a minor (30 minutes I think) schedule change.   Another one had a 5 minutes change and I was unable to change an undesirable overnight connection to same day.  I guess I didnít HuCA enough like @a mirrer did.

I originally booked BWI-YYZ-TLV, TLV-YYZ-BWI (and saved $150 over flying from NY).

I was supposed to have a 4 to 5 hour stopover on the way back but a few weeks ago they switched it to a 1:25 stopover. I just called today (return flight is in 24 hours) and told them I did not want to be stuck in YYZ overnight and I got them to put me on a flight to LGA which leaves 30 minutes later. It took just one call.

my father is flying to TLV next week for $300, is that the latest ticket?
Is he flying for an occasion or just because there is a ticket he is using it...

May his neshama have an aliyah.
Sounds like this might be the last of the glitch tix.
We did three trips (BOS-DXB x 2pax, BOS-PEK x 2 pax, BOS-TLV x 4 pax)...amazing times.
I was actually in PEK for my father's yahrtzeit...made an amazing minyan with some chasidim who had come to PEK for stem-cell treatment of neurological condition. Then we danced together for rosh chodesh (I never knew such a minhag!).

Good times....

Wow, you really took advantage of that glitch! IIRC you met a nice family on your way to TLV as well

Yes, a very nice family, three generations, who also seemed to take pretty good advantage of the glitch. :)

I booked a ticket during the glitch for Shavuos, however my daughter ended up being hospitalized that week and I couldn't make the flight. I cancelled the ticket as soon as I realized I wouldn't be going. After the ordeal was over (she's bh fine) I sent in a doctors letter and requested a refund. But they are giving me a very hard time. Anyone have experience with this?

I know this isn't the thread for it (is there a dedicated thread for deal requests), but I'm running out of paper and need a good hot deal on paper.

Currently I have a stand next to my desk to hold my printer... It's made out of reams of paper.

I can use that paper and then some.

I was quite a n00b when cases of paper were available for pennies or less. Only got about 10 cases back then.
