Mistake fares: Calgary to Dubai - $583 CAD roundtrip including taxes


Air Canada is showing some fares between Calgary and Dubai that are so low, they are quite likely a mistake.

It's possible other destinations are a part of this mistake, so stay tuned on Twitter @YYCdeals for updates.

Update 4/28 @ 6:08 PM MST - It looks like the fares to Dubai have been fixed. The flights to Shanghai are still available (see below).

How to find and book these flights

1. Start with a search like this one on Google Flights...

Google Flights search: Calgary to Dubai

2. You'll notice that there's an extra flight, between Christchurch and Wellington, New Zealand. This flight is somewhat irrelevant, but necessary for the mistake price. You simply would not use the extra flight.

You can try experimenting with other dates to see what prices come up. I would focus on Tuesday to Wednesday to Wednesday flights like in the example above.

3. Select your flights, and then click through from Google Flights to Expedia for booking.

IMPORTANT: As this is likely a mistake fare, do *not* under any circumstances call the airline, and keep your expectations low. Air Canada has been known not to honor their mistake fares in the past. Expedia however, is generally pretty good for doing so. It's hard to say what will happen with this one.

If you find any other interesting prices, help out your fellow traveler and share the dates in the comments section below.
