Voice of Travelers to Louisville
Booked ticket to Louisville with American is worth it
Hi I'm Carrie from Dallas. I booked a ticket to Louisville for the Kentucky Derby last May. I booked my ticket with American Airlines. I must say I'm very impressed with their quality. I was able to grab a ticket deal to Louisville, I only thought that their service would only be average. But, when I got in the flight, everything was in perfect place. The flight attendants were very polite, entertaining, quick to respond, and informative. And, the food I ordered during the flight was very delicious. I will definitely book my air ticket to other US states with American Airlines again. I recommend them to everyone. Their ticket price and deals are worth it.
My trip to Louisville, ticket from Delta Airlines
I'm Kaye from Miami. I booked a ticket to Louisville with Delta. It was a direct flight spanning about 2 hours and 35 minutes. The Delta flight crew were very accommodating and friendly. Their food and beverages were affordable and delicious. Inflight entertainment was fine. My seat was comfortable enough. The ticket value was right for the the whole trip. The trip was not much of a hassle for me. The flight itself was smooth and does not have much turbulence. I will be booking my ticket to other places again with Delta. It is a good affordable airline brand you can book your ticket from.
New experiences in Louisville
Hello I'm Doll from Dallas. I have to say my stay in Louisville was very enjoyable. My family and I booked a ticket to Louisville last summer for a quick family getaway. My kids and enjoyed the place, especially the Kentucky Kingdom and Hurricane Bay. Particularly, they rode the FearFall, the Giant Wheel, and the Mile High Falls over and over again. Seeing them happy was a blast for me and my husband. We also appreciate the rich horse racing history at the Derby Museum. We watched a baseball game at the Louisville Bats stadium. And we also took a trip back in history with the Spirit of Jefferson museum. The operating sea vessel museum was definitely a new experience for me and my family. My husband and I will be sure to book a ticket back to Louisville with the kids again.
