LHR TLV British Airways Error Fare (Expired)
« on: June 13, 2018, 01:16:33 PM »
I booked the error fare (expired) this past Tuesday that was featured on DDMS.  I have not received a cancellation from BA as of now.  What is a reasonable amount of time to wait before making additional plans (i.e. booking tickets to LHR from US)?

Thanks

To me it's not certainly an error fare, I would say you are good

Anyone have a clue what this was all about? Maybe some travel agent can explain.

It bears relevance if it was an error on BAs side or not.

The total price was less than the taxes and YQ, so I would say it was an error.

What's the difference between price and YQ?

BA has now cancelled the tickets.  Oh well.

Seems like they're promising to honor mistake fares.
