Voice of Travelers to Birmingham
Airfare ticket to Birmingham from Denver
I travelled to Birmingham for a business trip. I booked a ticket last minute with United Express from Denver. The ticket to Birmingham was not expensive even if I purchased it just a week before my flight to Birmingham. The ticket agent offered me the accommodation near the Birmingham airport for the first night as my ticket indicated very late arrival to Birmingham. United Express provided good service, worth the flight ticket price. Furthermore, when I decided to change the ticket date for returning back from Birmingham, my ticket agent did not take any extras. I recommend United Express for a reasonable ticket price even if booked late if you travel to Birmingham.
Visiting Birmingham and its sites with a return ticket ffor the first class
I visited Birmingham last autumn with bunch of friends who invited me to come along. Birmingham was one city I had never visited, just never found a cheap airfare ticket for. This time, we booked the group airfare ticket to Birmingham and paid for it together. The price of a group ticket to Birmingham was thus cheaper than if each one of us would buy an individual ticket. We flew to Birmingham with Southwest Airlines. Since the ticket was not expensive, we decided to upgrade for the first class at the airport. The service aboard Southwest Airlines was very good both on the way to Birmingham and back, it was totally worth the ticket price for the first class. Birmingham is an amazing place and I would love to visit it again if we put a group together to go to Birmingham on a group ticket again.
