Voice of Travelers to Knoxville

Airfare ticket to from Philadelphia to Knoxville

I bought a ticket to visit Knoxville for a short visit. The airfare ticket to Knoxville was issued by local airlines called American Eagle. The ticket was issued for a flight taking off from Philadelphia on Tuesday and returning from Knoxville again a four days later Friday. The ticket dates suited me very well. The service aboard the airplane was very good and so it was worth the ticket price. Knoxville was a great place with a lot of fun sites and most of them required no entrance ticket. Unfortunately, there was no ticket available to return from Knoxville on Sunday as I wanted to change my airfare ticket and fly out of Knoxville later. I tried to book a ticket from Knoxville with another airline, but none of them flew to Philadelphia.

Visiting Knoxville with an airfare ticket for the business class

I visited Knoxville last year. I was invited to Knoxville for a short visit by one of my business partner so my costs were covered by his company. I flew with Air Canada from Ottawa to Newark on a ticket for the economy class, and then they booked my ticket with United Airlines from Newark to Knoxville in the first class. Even if I did not pay for the ticket, I wondered how expensive the airfare ticket to Jackson must have been. The service aboard both airlines I used was excellent. I would love to return to Knoxville again, even if this time I am not invited and I have to pay for my plane ticket to Knoxville myself.
