Delta glitch: Computer glitch leads to Delta tickets as low as $25

Delta glitch rumors have been confirmed by the airline today. It seems that a major Delta glitch in their computer system led to fares being sold for as little as $25.05. A report on KREM from Thursday (Dec. 26) reveals that it all took place between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. PT.

Was Race Across U.S. Safe?

That inexpensive fare was for a roundtrip ticket between Cincinnati and Minneapolis in February. Another deal was between Cincinnati and Sal Lake City, with those tickets going for just $48.41. Both tickets were intended to cost more than $400 each, but that's not how it appeared to fortunate customers for the airlines during that two hour span.

It appears that a discount formula was used incorrectly, with one customer noting that a roundtrip first-class ticket between Baltimore and Honolulu was available for $98. While this Delta glitch has certainly made quite a few consumers happy, it could end up costing the airline quite a bit. They are forced to honor the tickets as advertised, meaning they will definitely honor the purchases that were made between those two hours.

The problems with the online systems for the airline have since been fixed, but not before many people were able to found out their holiday seasons with some great airfare costs.
