About 900 long haul Business Class tickets were sold online in Australia for Economy Class prices.

That's an error costing around 3 million dollars.

 

Now SIA are trying to recover this money through Travel Agents or directly from the people who bought the tickets.

Apparently according to Australian law SIA haven't got a leg to stand on.

 

Why don't SIA just accept the error and not cause major problems with their standing as a 'great airline'.

 

Also with the major fall in oil prices has anyone noticed any drop in airline ticket price here?

SQ should bear the cost of misrepresentation. Why go after travel agents or passengers for their own boo-boo?

This type could be kenna leak out in a forum, then in a short time huge volume of business class purchases. Won't be surprise many are profiteering by bulk purchase.

Not just SQ, last time microsoft also pricing mistake for the office for $15-$20... Then they cancel all our order.

HP also went to court for not honoring pricing mistake for their laser printer, and won.

It doesn't really "cost $3m"

It means that's $3m they couldn't make.

If this were Amazon, they would have probably graciously accepted their error and allowed those who purchased these tickets to continue as per usual.
