I understood there is a service that receives an SMS with a keyword and sends back flights via SMS? or available seats?
I suppose you want to mock the SMS service, so you can test the system without actually needing the roundtrip over the cell network?
Depends when you want to test that on which infrastructure. You might go as far as having fake-numbers, that your text message gateway will reroute to a e-mail or any other queue for testing. But then, you might want to make sure those are not accessible from outside, not that you give away your seats to fake-customers and end up in non-fake-news ...
