United Airlines glitch gives super cheap flights again

A glitch in United Airlines website has the airline once again offering nearly-free flights.

Customers with a MileagePlus account who open two different tabs and go through with a purchase will essentially trick the site into thinking they have enough frequent flier miles to pay for the cost of the flights.

Some users have been able to purchase tickets from New Jersey to Ireland for under $50, which is the cost of the fees and taxes of the flight. United Airlines was contacted but declined to comment on just how many travelers have been able to take advantage of the software glitch.

Unlike September’s glitch, this time-round the cheap flights are the result of people manipulating the website, so it is unlikely that the airline will honor the reduced prices.

The above article is a summary. Please see the source article at Google News.
