what happened to us:
My husband had a business trip to Florida. He went to PRICELINE.COM
to look for an inexpensive fare. His specification for time was
LATE AFTERNOON on FRIDAY.
They charged our credit card $450.00 for a flight at 9AM on THURSDAY.
He was unable to use the ticket. There was no recourse from PRICELINE.COM,
or from the airline directly.
ripped us off and there is nothing we can do about it!

was told there was no one else to talk to. I went to my bank and
signed a statement saying that I did not authorize the transaction.
They faxed it to priceline within about 3 hours of the purchase
and priceline still processed the transaction. It looks as though
I am going to be out $624 for ticket I will never use. Thier website
is extremely misleading and borderline criminal. Ted
