Two days ago, we posted about the unbelievable deals to Europe and beyond on the Norwegian website Wideroe. The deals were amazing. Only $149 to Milan from New York. But how could this deal pop up so quickly? Why was only one site able to book the deal? It seems it may have been an inside travel industry job.
The Autoslash blog has what are self described incriminating details. They allege a user by the name of LN-MOW and Farmer might be representatives for the website and one message was signed “Odd”. The CEO of the website’s first name is Odd Langvatn, the CEO and Managing Director at Widerøe Internet AS.
This makes me wonder what are the implications for a travel site that publishes a mistake fare for their own benefit? Anyone care to guess?
