Earlier this week I wrote about Business Class flights to Beijing for just ~$450 round-trip!

Business Class tickets from the US to Beijing can cost ~$5,000!  So this was an incredible deal!

But I always warn folks to hold off on booking other non-refundable hotels, accommodations, etc. because your reservation may not be honored by the airline.

For example, United Airlines decided to cancel First and Business Class tickets to Europe that were purchased for ~$100.

But American Airlines has made a different decision…

American Airlines has announced on its Twitter page that it will honor tickets that were booked at this mistake fare.

So what does this mean?

If you paid for your ticket, I say it’s now safe to make other travel arrangements!

However, folks who placed their itinerary on hold may NOT be so lucky!  According to FlyerTalk, many have had their itinerary removed from hold and it looks like American Airlines does NOT intend to honor flights that were placed on hold.
