I decided to check out an advertisement I saw on another site which stated Philippines from $488. On their web site they have the standard method for inputting your flight criteria for cities and dates.
Upon submitting the flight criteria, their web site returned a flight for $1,184.80. I called the phone number and was told that there is no flight matching my submitted criteria for the price shown on their web site.
They insisted that their legal adviser assured them that this is not false advertising and that I just did not understand how airline prices are determined.
I don't care what they want to call it. If their web site shows a price based on the flight criteria submitted which is not available, that is misleading and a waste of my time.
Monetary Loss: $1184.
