NEW YORK — Some Delta customers scored a late Christmas present on Thursday.

Delta acknowledged a glitch caused steeply-discounted tickets to be offered online Thursday — some for as low as $27, according to customers.

They celebrated their finds on social media, including cross-country flights for $40 and Boston to Honolulu lifts for $68. One customer said she bought tickets between Tallahassee and Los Angeles for $27 each way.

Those routes normally cost between several hundred and several thousand dollars.

Delta spokesman Trebor Banstetter said the airline would honor the incorrectly priced fares, which were offered on the airline’s website and other travel sites where it lists tickets.

“For a portion of the morning today, some prices on delta.com and other booking channels were incorrectly displayed, resulting in lower than usual fares for customers,” Banstetter said in a statement.
