Voice of Travelers to Huntsville

First time buying a ticket online

A. Hi, this is Patricia, a senior citizen. I wanted visit my pals in Huntsville. I got on the internet to search for a ticket. I found a cheap ticket so I wanted to buy it. This was my first time shopping online. The ticket was for Delta Air. When I went on the website for buying the ticket, it would not accept my card. I got really nervous. I called Delta Air to help me purchase this ticket. He told me I had to use a credit card instead of a debit card for buying this ticket. I was thankful for the service. I bought my ticket but had some trouble printing it. Someone helped me print the ticket. I finally went to Huntsville. It was a great experience as usual but the process of buying the ticket was definitely memorable.

Father son space escapade

Hey y'all, Henry here. My 8 year old son is a huge space fan so I bought us a discounted ticket to Huntsville for a weekend. The ticket was on sale on a website. I took him to the US Space and Rocket Centre where we saw a mockup of space shuttle and an Apollo Capsule. We saw many other cool things. We had lunch at the Mars Grill in the Centre. We just kept exploring. My son now wants to grow up to be an astronaut. I am glad I took him there and bought this ticket. I am waiting for a ticket to Huntsville to be on sale again.
