The United Airlines glitch that made it possible for you to fly around the country for less than the cost of a gallon of gas has been fixed. This United Airlines glitch got you a round-trip ticket from New York to Houston for only $5. If you were going from Washington D.C. to Austin, Texas, you would need to shell out only half that amount, just $2.50, to get you there and back, according to "Fox and Friends Weekend" live on Saturday, Sept. 14.
The L.A. Times reports that it is not known just how many of the deeply discounted tickets were sold during this computer glitch, which lasted about two hours. People using the online reservation system found they were getting flights for unbelievable prices. These unauthorized discounts were the result of a computer glitch with the online reservation system. The system was briefly shut down when the problem was discovered.
United Airlines then announced that the glitch had been fixed and the tickets were selling for normal prices once again. United Airlines Twitter page had tweets from people who were lucky enough to buy their tickets during the two hour glitch.
Folks who held some of the cheapest airline tickets in history wanted to know if United was going to honor the cheap tickets. "Fox and Friends Weekend" on Saturday reports that United will honor the tickets that their system discounted during the computer glitch. Now, that's flying some friendly skies!
