- Cheap Tickets helps people fly on the cheap, but customers may never again see a deal like the one offered this week.
A computer glitch on the company’s Web site allowed numerous fliers to book round-trip tickets from the United States to Reykjav’k, Iceland, on Icelandair for under $100 – far less than the normal summer fares.
- On Thursday evening, Cendant Corp., owner of Cheap Tickets, said it was honoring the fares. It did not say how many of the dirt-cheap tickets had been purchased, and Iceland-air did not return a phone call.
Speculation is that at least 800 tickets were purchased at the $61 price, which consisted entirely of taxes.
