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 ...
| Departures= Planes leaving the airport|| An airport|| Arrivals= Planes coming to the airport|
| To take-off/ a take-off|
A runway is used to take-off
or bring passengers back to an airport.
| To land|
|The First class||The Business-class|
= the Economy class
What must you do before flying?
| || || |
| To check-in |
Get your Boarding pass
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:
A baggage handler
An Immigration Officer
| The crew |
= Hostesses and Stewards
Here we are: READY to go, at last :
Passengers are boarding
The overhead compartment
| A tray-table|
Fasten your beatbelt
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 :
|On the way|| = Departed ||On time||= not late|
|Delayed||= will be late||Cancelled|| = called-off |
|Arrived /||Landed|| = Arrived ||at the airport|
More vocabulary :

|A journey||= un voyage||A passenger|| = a traveller|
|A carry-on|| = a cabin luggage||An over-sized luggage||= very big cases|
|An over-weight case||= a very heavy case||A control tower||to check the planes|
|A domestic flight||= a national flight||A long-haul flight|| = an international flight|
|An aisle seat|| = a seat near the walkway ||A window seat||= seat near the window .|
|To schedule||= to plan|| A reward|| = sthg given to acknowledge merit |
After the flight:
A customs officer and a sniffer dog
Home at last!
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 !
