Wow- NYC to TLV for $400 in January.

ETA: Just ordered for my mother. I'll have to wait on pins and needles till after American Shabbat to find out if the dates are good- on these types of things is it easy to change dates later?

Guys. This is a mistake by this OTA. You are being charged by the OTA and not the airline. These are all red flags. In the GDS all the fares are loaded properly with the Fuel Surcharges. Either the website coding is messed up or they are maliciously manipulating the fares. I can not see how these tickets will be held up.
This isn't the first time this has happened. Sometimes, the OTA honors them.
Will have to wait and see.

Booked a ticket, and it gave me a confirmation number. Oddly enough, it must have been a CO confirmation number since the UA website gave me a new one.
(Although perhaps that is common, I don't know)

My mistake. They are not an OTA. Wildero is an airline that is owned by SAS. That is how I am assuming that they have access to the United flights as well as other Star Alliance Carriers. I can't make sense of the whole thing.
