Delta Air Lines accidentally posted flights for as low as $20 round-trip for a brief period Thursday morning, but the airline promised to honor the “mistake fares.”

Frequent fliers discussing the glitch on FlyerTalk.com began reporting the mistake fares at 9 a.m., but by 10:45 a.m., the offers had disappeared. The deals still appeared on Delta.com, Expedia, Priceline and elsewhere, ABC News reported.

“For a portion of the morning today, some prices on delta.com and other booking channels were incorrectly displayed, resulting in lower than usual fares for customers,” the airline said in a statement. “The situation has been resolved, and the correct prices are being displayed. Delta will honor any fares purchased at the incorrect price.”

The Delta website also experienced problems on Thursday afternoon. A message reading “It looks like you may be trying to visit a place that doesn’t exist” appeared during an attempt to book a flight, ABC reported.
