Mint ST - - FRONT PAGE - South China Morn­ing Post BLOOMBERG

Less than two weeks after say­ing it had a tick­et­ing er­ror that gave away premium seats at huge dis­counts, Cathay Pa­cific has done it again. This time, some vis­i­tors to their book­ing site got lucky on flights from Europe to Hong Kong. The

re­ported Sun­day that the car­rier of­fered first-class seats from Por­tu­gal to Hong Kong at a tenth of its orig­i­nal price of $16,000. The re­peat of the glitch adds to the em­bar­rass­ment the car­rier faced last year when a hack on Cathay’s sys­tems ex­posed pri­vate data of 9.4 mil­lion pas­sen­gers glob­ally. “We are aware of the er­ror on some fares from Europe on our web­site be­cause of an in­put is­sue,” Cathay said in a state­ment.
