    Hong Kong-based Cathay Pacific airline mistakenly sold out a batch of first and business class tickets for 1/24 their regular cost, news.com.au reports.

    Tickets for August flights from Vietnam to New York, for some time, could be purchased for a bargain rate of $675. Tickets for the same flights in July and September cost 16 thousand dollars.

    The carrier has already reported that it was a mistake, but promised: everyone who managed to purchase tickets will be able to use them.

    An unusually low price for air tickets on 31 December was noticed by several travel bloggers. Shortly after they published the information about it on social networks, Cathay Pacific fixed the price mistake.
