Unintended Discount On Avianca.com Website

Fri Dec 08, 2006 11:00 pm

Seems that Avianca lets you apply a 5% discount on tickets purchased on their website in the US.

Apparently, this smart shopper repeated some steps which triggered the discount and received a 95% discount!

Details here:

Yes, and at the end they honored the ticket, but that was obviously a punishable behavior from the customer, the Airline shouldn't have honored it.
I miss ACES, I am proud of AVIANCA & I am loyal to AMERICAN
