United Airlines was selling some tickets on Thursday for as little as five dollars before shutting down bookings on its website.

Some customers were able to buy tickets before the airline stopped accepting orders on the website. United also is not taking reservations by phone.

United has not made a comment.

Airline fare mistakes have happened before, often when an airline drops a digit when entering fares into its computer system.

Social media such as Twitter ensures that word of such mistake fares spreads even faster than before.
