Visiting the travel agent

Posted on 2005.03.05 at 16:45
Current Mood: amusedamused
Me: Hello I would like to get a price for a ticket going to Louisville from Cardiff.
Girl: *Looks confused*
Me: It's in Kentucky.
Girl: *Still looks confused*
Me: *Sigh*
Girl: So is that just a flight?
Me: Yes.
Girl: What dates?
Me: Departing 30 April, return 10 May.
Girl: *Starts entering details* How do you spell Louisville?
Me: L-O-U-I-S then ville
Girl: Is that all one word.
Me: Yes.
Girl: Where is that?
Me: Kentucky.
Girl: *Looks confused*
Me: If it's any help the airport code is SDF.
Girl: *Gets all excited*
Me: *Sigh*
Girl: There are no flights for those dates.
Me: Ok thanks bye.
Girl: *Looks confused*

I hate going through the motions I know that there ae flights available, I've seen them!

Use one of the on-line services. Try travelocity.com or orbitz.com.

The reason I went to the travel agent was because I've never been to America, so I'm not sure of the transfers and things. This poor girl didn't have a clue though.

I'll definitely have a look at those sites thanks :)

I think the girl's problem was that she didn't understand that you'd need connecting flights. I don't think much flies non-stop into Louisville. Particularly not from Cardiff.

But the online services will work up connecting flights and everything for you.

;o) I know that was why it was so funny. Cardiff only really does direct flights to parts of Europe. We have a little airport :O)
