ATLANTA, Dec. 26 (UPI) -- Travelers got unexpected presents Thursday from Delta Air Lines when they booked airfares as cheap as $25 for round-trip coast-to-coast flights.

The super-cut rate fares appeared on the Delta Website about 10 a.m. EST and lucky customers were able to book some flights for under $5, plus taxes and fees. The real gift came later when Delta said it would honor the fares, the Wall Street Journal said.

Tazmun Nahar, who runs the airfare tracking site skiplagged.com, told the Journal she booked a $25 round-trip flight from New York to Seattle and three $25 round-trip seats from New York and Los Angeles.

Delta corrected the fare errors by midday.
