(BBC) – Cathay Pacific has said it will honour first-class and business-class tickets that it sold to sofaresSOLD FOR me lucky passengers for a fraction of the usual price.
The Hong Kong-based airline mistakenly sold business-class seats on August flights from Vietnam to New York for about $675 return.
Prices on the same route in July and September cost $16,000.
The airline admitted that it “made a mistake”, but said it would honour the tickets.
The fares were reported by travel bloggers on 31 December and later pulled by Cathay Pacific.
It was not clear how many tickets had been sold and Cathay Pacific did not immediately respond to requests from the BBC.
