That would be my wife's. Woke up to make her waffles for her 30th bday today and have been at the computer all morning instead.
Birthday error fares strike again. (Free LAS vacation during my surprise bday party, 4 mile island during Rafi's bday party, this today, I think there was at least one more I'm forgetting.)
Please let us know when the next birthday in your family is, so we can be ready to nab error fares.  ;D
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

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.

Need to make sure sukkah and daled minim are ready early this year, so we have time for error fares.

Any word on if they will honor the fare yet?

IME one clears US customs in YYZ, HOWEVER rather than claiming it, you identify it on a monitor, so best way is always to book a long layover and ask to check in your luggage only to connecting point.

Booked BWI-YYZ-TLV for chanukah for $232, one hour connection is scaring me though if there's a weather delay in BWI.

How could they not honor it?

Same flight I bought this morning for


Is pricing now at close to $1,400.

That was special for you! Now we know why the deal is dead.

I'm in the same situation. I'm looking to ditch YYZ-BOS on the way home from TLV. Shouldn't be an issue to collect bags if my layover in YYZ is overnight from 4:25pm-6:45am +1?

I got a pleasant surprise when booking BOS-PEK for me, DW, DD1 and DD2. 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. Anyone else have this?
