Traveler scores $250,000 worth of tickets for $17,000 after ANA airline error

A man bagged US$250,000 worth of airline tickets for just $17,000 after fares on an All Nippon Airways (ANA) website were listed ultra cheaply due to a currency conversion error.

Herman Yip, 32, snapped up 25 tickets for a small fraction of their usual cost, including a round-trip in first class all the way from Jakarta to Aruba, via Tokyo and New York, for only US$890. Some business-class flights cost as little as US$300, according to Bloomberg.

ANA said Wednesday that airfares were listed incorrectly on its Vietnam website due to an erroneous currency conversion. The Japanese carrier has not confirmed if the cut-price tickets will remain valid, saying it would make a decision by the end of April on how to address the issue.

Yip, who runs a travel website from Hong Kong, said the low prices remained on the Japanese carrier’s website for at least 12 hours.
