Cathay Pacific again accidentally sells first-class tickets for a fraction of the price | ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

Less than two weeks after a Cathay Pacific ticketing error led to premium seats being sold for economy fares, Cathay Pacific has accidentally sold tickets from Europe to Hong Kong for less than a tenth of their usual prices.

The South China Morning Post (SCMP) reported that first-class tickets from Portugal to Hong Kong were sold for $2,103, down from $22,179.

And because Cathay Pacific doesn’t fly direct from Lisbon to Hong Kong, the deep discount also included one-way legs on partner carriers from Lisbon to London, Frankfurt, or Zurich.

A Cathay Pacific spokeswoman said the fares were the fault of a website error due to an input issue.

“The sale of such fares was stopped immediately,” she said in a statement.

“We are looking into the root cause of this incident both internally and externally with our vendors.

“For the very small number of customers who have purchased these tickets, we look forward to welcoming you on board to enjoy our premium services.”
