** not working ** Toronto to places in India with Etihad Airways - $484 to $563 CAD roundtrip including taxes | mistake fares

India

Etihad Airways is showing what appears to be mistake fares from Toronto to various cities in India.

Update @ 6:00 PM EST - I've been hearing from quite a few people that they are unable to complete their purchases for these flights, on any booking site. Sorry everyone, it looks like these are not bookable.



Availability for travel

February, March, April 2018

(so far, still checking for more dates)

How to find and book this deal

1. Go to Skyscanner

2. Search for a flight from Toronto to...

Mumbai / Bombay, India (BOM)
Delhi, India (DEL)
Hyderabad, India (HYD)

Other cities that may work (haven't checked):

Bangalore, India (BLR)
Bangladesh (DAC)
Lahore, Pakistan (LHE)



NOTE: After your Skyscanner search completes, you may see results from other booking sites instead of from Gate1.ca. Some of those prices will appear to be even cheaper.

So far, I've only seen these prices verify on...

Gate1.ca
TripAir.com
Tripsta.ca

None of these sites are ideal for booking mistake fares. Gate1.ca would probably be my first choice, as I've seen them come through on mistake fares in the past.

One booking site showing these mistake fares that never works is CTrip. It will give you an error message once it tries to verify the price.

I have my doubts that any of these sites can actually issue the tickets, but every mistake fare situation is different, and you just never know.

After your Skyscanner search completes, you may need to click on 'X more' underneath the Select button, to see the link to Gate1.ca or TripAir.com or Tripsta.ca

And lastly, you may need to try the second or third result from the top of the Skyscanner search results, not just the first result.

3. Try one of the following date combinations:

Listed beside the price, you'll see the travel durations, in hours.

For longer trips, you can try mixing and matching the dates from different lines in the list below.

It's well worth trying your own dates, as I'm sure there are many more.

You may want to try starting with Tuesday and Wednesday dates.

I'll keep adding as many examples as I can.

Mumbai / Bombay, India (BOM)

Feb 6 to Feb 21 -- $463, 22 / 21

Mar 6 to Mar 21 -- $536, 18 / 21
Mar 27 to Apr 11 -- $484, 19 / 20

Apr 3 to Apr 18 -- $563, 19 / 20
Apr 10 to Apr 25 -- $563, 19 / 20
Apr 17 to May 2 -- $563, 19 / 20

Delhi, India (DEL)

Mar 27 to Apr 11 -- $551, 19 / 21

Hyderabad, India (HYD)

Mar 6 to Apr 2 -- 18h / 20h

What can you tell me about Gate1.ca ?

Gate1.ca only started showing up on Momondo about 10 months ago as a partner booking site, but they are actually owned by tix.nl (you can see this on their contact page).

Some of the larger booking sites around the world create 'spin-off' booking sites that are dedicated to specific markets or countries.

Tix.nl is an agency based in the Netherlands and has been around for at least 6 years, as far as I can tell from their reviews on TrustPilot.com

The tix.nl reviews on TrustPilot seem better than most booking sites. It appears that tix.nl actually responds to reviews, which is definitely more than can be said for most sites.

Gate1Travel.ca has no relation to Gate1Travel.com - a somewhat well known tour company in the U.S.

I have seen mistake fares on Gate1.ca before (particulary with All Nippon Airways), and in those situations, they were able to issue the tickets just fine.

But every mistake fare situation is different, so definitely *DO NOT BOOK ANYTHING ELSE* and wait at least 24-48 hours after booking to be sure that everything is fine.

Update @ 5:33 PM EST - It may also be possible to book these by clicking through to TripAir.com or Tripsta.ca

Update @ 6:00 PM EST - I've been hearing from quite a few people that they are unable to complete their purchases for these flights, on any booking site. Sorry everyone, it looks like these are unbookable.
