Mistake Fare Alert! Swiss Air: Los Angeles/San Francisco – Zurich. $568. Roundtrip. All in

Swiss Air, an United, Continental and US Airways frequent flyer program partner, forgot to put fuel surcharges on their fare from Los Angeles to Zurich, Switzerland.

Get on it before they put it back in.

The $568 fare connects in San Francisco. San Francisco residents can buy a one-way ticket to LAX to catch the flight for $69. Coming back from Switzerland, since you will clear immigration and customs in San Francisco, just pick your bags, go home and not fly down to Los Angeles.
