What types of information would you expect to hear from the pilot or flight attendant on an airplane?
A. Listen to the recording and answer the questions.
Captain: Hello everyone, this is the captain speaking, and I want to welcome you to Flight 18 bound for Seattle.
Our flight time today is 2 hours and 14 minutes, and we will be flying at an average altitude of 29,000 feet.
The local time in Seattle is a quarter to twelve (11:45).
Captain: The current weather is sunny, but there is a chance of rain later in the day.
Captain. We will be arriving at Gate 13.
Do the vocabulary quizzes with the words from the conversation for more practice:
Talk about your last trip on an airplane. Where did you go? How much did it cost? What was your flight like: pleasant, comfortable, long?
What are the most important points you look for when you choose an airline for your next flight? Which things are most important to you? Price, destination, length of flight, on-time record, meals, comfort and seating, and customer service? Then, choose a destination and compare two different airlines and see which company is the best choice for you.
