Because they can offer much better deals than you?
Well, I am sorry to see response like this while I am giving professional advice.
I totally understand how they managed to issue ticket at this price by circumventing carrier's inventory system, those kind of reservation violate carrier's ticketing policy and ticket could be cancelled by carrier at any time. That's why you won't find any reputable website selling these fares.
Just cross your fingers, you might be the lucky one.Winking Face

Booked via Budgetair (didn't trust Faregeek and BA provides 24h cancellation) for $666 between Feb 13-21. YYZ->IAD->NRT and HND->YVR->YYZ. Going ANA for both overseas legs. Got my e-ticket just now and saw my booking via ANA's website.
Can I know the booking code displayed on ANA website? It should be K if my guess is right.

You mean the class? I do see 'K' on each flight.

Flash deals do happen from time to time and this is definitely legit. Followed yvrdeals and was able to book 5 tickets for me and my friends from Vancouver to Seoul to Japan and Japan to Vancouver for under $700.

This was link I followed:
http://www.yvrdeals.com/2-in-1-and-3-in ... ding-taxes

Got confirmation # and called Air Canada to check my tickets and everything was legit and good to go.

These are different "deals", the fare you booked is airline published fare, and every reputable OTA would sell them. But this YYZ-NRT fare is definitely not published, the following quote is NH(ANA) fares in the market for March travel, lowest roundtrip base fare is 1056 CAD in W booking class. What they are doing is tricking airlines's inventory system and book into lowest K fare...

You will run into headaches if airlines do a schedule change before your departure. Those agent will most likely can’t afford to reroute you given this price. ( they need fare class k to reroute you and most likely won’t be available as we get closer to departure day)

I would assume they won’t give you a refund neither. ( or u need to chase them for months to get one)

If you frequent flyertalk.com, the advise is that buy tickets directly with airlines.

I had bad experience with Expedia in terms of schedule change also. Since then I will just buy directly from airlines. Deals come and go all the time.

This is not necessarily true. What most people (TA or sites) are published fares by the airline. There are consolidator fares that do get that low.

At the end of the day if the difference a few dollars book with airline, more book with whatever site.

Once you are at the airport the ticket becomes airport controlled so they are still required to get to you to the final destination - schedule change or not.
