It looked like a steal: $72 for a round-trip business class ticket on South African Airways between Johannesburg and Abu Dhabi.
The online offer, part of a promotional sale at the end of February, was indeed too good to be true.
The airline said Thursday that it erroneously published the incorrect fare and that it was refunding customers who had snapped up the tickets.
At a military base outside Bangkok, soldiers stand guard over Buddha statues, showcases of Rolex watches and some very expensive French wine — a $4,000 bottle of Petrus and choice vintages of Dom Perignon.
Police accuse Pongpat of leading a network responsible for offenses including money laundering, extortion and taking bribes from oil smugglers, illegal gambling dens and police officers seeking promotions.
A second sale is scheduled for later this month.
Since Pongpat and several other police officials were arrested in November, authorities say they discovered assets worth more than 1 billion baht, or $30 million, including 104 plots of land and a massive art stash that was hidden in underground vaults and safe houses.
Much of it is not up for auction, including 12th-century Buddhist statues that have been turned over to Thailand's Fine Arts Department, and ivory tusks, gold bars, luxury cars and diamond jewelry held by the anti-money-laundering agency.
Pongpat had more time to accumulate wealth than many top-level Thai police officials, who typically rotate posts every two years.
 analysts including Jomdet Trimek, a police officer turned academic, cast doubt on police claims that Pongpat's actions were unique.
Critics say the army's real goal is to cripple political allies of self-exiled former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, who was ousted in a 2006 coup, also on grounds of corruption and insulting the monarchy.
