(FOX) -- A few very lucky people may have snagged the travel-deal of a lifetime this year: Cathay Pacific accidentally sold business and first-class tickets from Vietnam to New York for $675, rather than the standard $16,000.
The Hong Kong-based airline said it mistakenly sold business-class seats on August flights for a fraction of the usual price – and it plans to honor the blunder. Although it sold the ticket for around $675, prices for the same route in July and September cost around $16,000.
“Happy 2019 all, and to those who bought our good - VERY good surprise ‘special’ on New Year’s Day, yes - we made a mistake but we look forward to welcoming you on board with your ticket issued. Hope this will make your 2019 ‘special’ too!” the company wrote on Twitter.
