Airline Booking Confirmation Phish

Recently I came across an airline booking confirmation phishing email.  Whilst this is not necessarily a new phishing technique, the email and associated phishing website are quite interesting and at first glance could appear to be legitimate.  In the email, it states confirmation of payment made by credit card, and that the recipient should click an embedded link in order to print their tickets and flight information.

The email itself is in plain text and looks nothing out of the ordinary.  However, upon further investigation I noticed that the sending domain, which is spoofed, is not actually one associated with the airline.  It looks similar but the actual sending domain that is spoofed is for an air purifier and cleaner company and is not associated with the airline in any way.  This would appear to be just laziness on the part of the spammer for not checking that the sending website matches the airline that they are pretending to be and should immediately make anyone suspicious about the authenticity of the email.  Of course if you have not made any airline reservations, then the email would immediately cause suspicion It is possible, however, that the scammers would hope that the user might believe that they have received this email in error and click on the link anyway in order to investigate further.
