Fancy a quick flight between Sydney and Melbourne? An overnight glitch in Qantas' IT system threw up fares of over $11,000 for the one-way trip – in economy class!
That's almost the same price as a Qantas first class return ticket between Sydney and London, and works out at a staggering $122 for every minute you spend on the short flight.
The sky-high fares were listed across the board, from the cheapest Red-e Deal fares to the most expensive business class seats.
Return tickets came in at a staggering $22,000.
Australian Business Traveller reader Clarence Fong spotted the SNAFU, which a good-humoured Qantas spokesperson confirmed was the result of "an IT issue" which was being fixed this morning.
It's a turnabout from the usual 'online oops' which sees tickets listed at phenomenally lower rates which eagle-eyed flyers are quick to snap up. But we don't think anybody would have made a rush on these fares...
