Vocabulary: fly away...
For some people, "travelling by plane" or "taking the plane" is a usual habit, almost a daily one, sometimes... On the contrary, for others, the universe of an airport is quite unknown...
Anyway, this universe is very complex and increasigly becoming so, because of the terrible events which happened lately in the whole world.
In English, the expression: "I'll take the plane" can be used, but it is much more usual to use an expression representing many people's oldest dream: I'll fly!
Let's fly together ...
What must you do before flying?
Of course, before boarding, you will not forget to pay a visit to the different "duty-free shops".
The people you'll meet or fly with:

Here is an extremely strange show: seeing this tiny lorry (truck) getting the huge monster out of its gate. This is "towing"
or "push-back". Then, the plane will go and position itself in front of the runway getting ready to take off (it advances very slowly= "taxiing")
You may follow the flight on the Internet: Flight status :
More vocabulary :
After the flight:
Phew... That's a lot of technical vocabulary ... at least for people who aren't used to flying or going to airports...
On the contrary, this is very current and usual vocabulary for "frequent fliers".
The following test won't be difficult... Yet, I advise you to take a pause, and save, because it's quite long! I'm sure you'll do great... and it's a true story !
