No, your tickets are canceled, so, if you want to book these tickets, you can do so right now.
I just priced LHR
and it's around $7,800. All you have to do is put in your credit card details and mailing address, and you'll be ticketed in a first class suite! Not for $80, add $7,120, but they are still the same flight and same first class suite!
But of course, you must be able to afford
a $7,800 ticket to be able to book it (or have sufficient credit, I guess), so that could be a problem for some--but that is what this whole shebang is energized by.
Obviously, the majority of the people could not just slam down $7,800 to United at the drop of a hat, so, when they saw United made an obvious mistake, they acted as if they should be entitled for the $7,800 ticket even though they basically exploited a loophole and lied about their address (you knew what you were doing, don't give me any junk about what your actual address is, and, the majority of exploiters were from the US, so, this point is nonsensical anyhow) to book basically $80 for a first class fare. When United yanked it, they got so mad, but the customers that took advantage of what essentially was an unethical loophole acted as if United GlobalFirst Suites tickets are regularly priced for $80, and United basically told them to kick rocks, as they should, and did, because no one is selling $80 first class tickets, not intentionally
, at least. Common sense. PR
should never be the driving force in the majority of a corporation's decisions.
So, again, now that the loophole is closed, can't you just buy the $7,800 first class tickets?
