US-Airways Glitch

Airline to honor super-cheap tickets mistakenly sold

US Airways became the low-cost carrier of all time for a few hours this weekend. It was mistakenly selling round-trip flights to some American cities for less than the price of a gallon of gasoline.

The Arlington, Virginia-based carrier was selling tickets to smaller cities for a dollar-86 plus fees. The prices lasted a few hours Saturday until the problem was discovered and corrected.

Most of the fares involved flights into Lebanon, New Hampshire, or Watertown, New York. A US Airways spokesman says he doesn't know how many people bought the super-cheap tickets -- but that they will be honored.
