Status Of Cheap El Al Tickets 'Unclear'

08/06/2012 - 20:00

After initially saying El Al would honor bargain-basement fares purchased online through an error on Monday, a spokeswoman Tuesday did an about-face and said the airline was looking into the matter.

"It's unclear," said Sheryl Stein. "We'll know more tomorrow."

The cheap fares, initially seen as a promotion, led thousands of hopeful travelers to sites such as Orbitz and Expedia after a tip from the bargain-hunter site Dan's Deals.

El Al announced it would honor inordinately low fares that were offered because of a third-party error.
