Is it possible to say I was able to get you a ticket instead of I could have got you ticket?
Thanks in advance!
In the first sentence it's not obvious wether you got him a ticket or not, but in the latter one you didn't do such a thing...As you can see both forms are correct, of course with a subtle difference in the meaning...Remember, I could've done Sth... means I had the opportunity to do Sth in the past, but I Did Not Do That...Hope this works...
"I was able to get you a ticket" implies that you did get the ticket. "I could have got you a ticket" means that I had the opportunity and ability, but for some reason I did not. You could say "I would have been able to get you a ticket (had I known you wanted one)."
