I was flying home from CAST 2010 yesterday, and I found a bug. (Guess those testing conferences wear off on you!) I was on a two-part flight (Grand Rapids -> Baltimore -> Boston), and had upgraded to an exit row seat on one of them, at a cost of $20. The second flight was a standard seat.

This is what the terminal showed me when it came time to pay for the upgrade:

For the record, I was only charged $20. Go Airtran kiosk!


  1. $40.00 must be the upgrade cost of the whole flight.
    You only upgrade half the flight, therefore toal due $20.00.

  2. There are a number of plausible explanations for what happened - yours is certainly one of the most simple. It's still a bug, though - confusing at least to this end user!

  3. I agree with your comment.

    But what did you spent the other $20 on?
