I imagine they were mistakes, but American had open-jaw fares using Paris as the first stop in Europe for $300-$450 from a variety of cities. The cheapest I saw was CLT-CDG-MAD-CLT for $294, with LAX, SFO, SJC, BUR, ORD, and PHL all around $400-450. They were available for about three hours Frown

For winter travel, right?
I saw the aftermath on Facebook. I could not have used them anyway.
This is one reason I’ve tried (but failed) to use Twitter.
You really have to be on top of things.

I saw some fares good through the end of March. My wife and I were trying to get her or my parents to go with us and missed out while we waited to see if they’d tag along. I should’ve just had American hold the reservation for 24 hours.

Yes, if reserving would have worked, that would have been for the best.
I am going to try to be more vigilant.
I am looking for summer and/or holiday travel for 2011.

I read on Flyertalk that American forgot to load the fuel surcharges when they posted these fares, and some people who booked on third-party websites had their reservations canceled.

Ouch. That’s really too bad. You would think AA would have to honor those fares.

they must do something in return for those people. canceling their reservations not a good idea specially if these people been waiting for that for like forever
