In Israel?
Horrible grumpy call center in Israel -  Especially Ilana! They never want to help.

i booked my trip for purim, and mistakenly chose flights on shabbos. AC said that they would honor the tickets, but not any changes to it.
I still have a few hours to cancel it until 11:59 PDT.

I've considered same day changes and standby, and decided I wont do those.

Any suggestions how I can still make use of these tickets?
made the Same mistake on a price mistake few years ago...

you can ask them at the airport to change your connection, without fee, if there is space.
that would be when I check in Tel Aviv?

Air Canada visited our office today and said that they will be honoring the tickets  ;D
Cool, what did they say about it?
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.

I'm not surprised after them staying quiet for so long , but as far as mistakes go this has to be a costly one based on scope and blog coverage, even if it was only valid for hours.

Never been so happy to have set an alarm to wake up early(ish) on a Sunday morning. Thank you Dan!!

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

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.

anyway not even sure if many booked this deal with points does not seem so

It didn't give instructions how to set up a home network either, even though many booked from their home computers. Dan is really falling off his game, no?
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

UR wasn't really an option. Site was down for most of the glitch.
