Another United Airlines glitch had some flyers doing a double take. On Oct. 15 it was reported that a glitch in the airline's system -- for the second time this year -- had potential passengers picking up some insane deals -- like flights to Europe for under $50!
The first time this happened was back in Sept. Several passengers scooped up flights for $5 and United Airlines honored every one. This time, however, "lucky" passengers won't be so lucky. United says that they will not be honoring any tickets purchased during the glitch. You can't really blame them though... the money they lost the first time around was significant.
If the United Airlines glitch afforded you a super cheap ticket, you're probably not going to get on the plane. You should contact the airline directly and try to get everything squared away before the day of your flight. It's unclear why this glitch occurred but United is taking measures to ensure that this sort of thing doesn't happen again.
