[FARE DEAD] (Almost) Free Fares on Porter – can you get it to work?

Last night, I found 0$ fares + booking fees on Porter Airlines between YOW/YTZ/YUL-EWR/BOS/MDW. These fares only show up for weekends throughout October. I can pull the fare on flyporter.com, eDreams.net, and opodo.com. Alas, whenever I try booking it, something goes wrong.

On flyporter.com, the fare won’t go past the pricing page. On eDreams, it will only let you book if you’re using incognito mode. It will “hold” your reservation, but 12 or so hours later, you’ll get an unconfirmed booking email. Opodo cancelled the ticket within 20 minutes.

I’m hoping someone can find a way, a website for example, that would ticket this fare. Any ideas? Again, to find this fare, use incognito mode, and try using a browser other than Chrome.

  1. Hi, I don’t doubt what you did, but if I try and replicate this using same airlines/websites, I get the true prices and no $0 fares (or even close to it). In my case the “firm” price is non-existant (ie. you cannot select that ticky-box because there isn’t a box). Looks like they very quickly fixed the error they made and we are all forced to actually pay for flights.
