    Somebody is getting fired.

    Wouldn't be surprised if El Al cancels all of them, anyway.

    Was anyone here successful?

    ELAL did send out a tweet "An outside company posted incorrect fares on travel websites, so all tickets sold will indeed be honored". I do know a few people who were successful in getting those tickets..

    Nice. I guess they're going to force the third party to pay the difference.

    Wow. This one is going to get messy behind closed doors. Nice of ElAl to honor the tickets, though.
    But for those folks who board those planes at the steeply discounted prices, I'm curious if they will give a moment to consider the ethical conundrum that was created by accepting the benefits of such a huge "mistake".

    The flights offered were with a stop in Europe, ELAL has also offered to change the flights to Non-stops for $75

    Hmm, you think they ever consider the ethics in charging super high prices? Don;t kid yourself, if it were me, I'd go into that aircraft laughing my butt off. Don;t read too much into what I am saying, I am a prick about that in any situation My fav being a clerk who is a jerk to me only to give me change for a $20 when I gave them a $10!
