I have travelled by airplane only one time in my life. When I was 5, my family went back to Yangon from Mandalay by plane. We got on the train for journey to Mandalay and for the way back home we took the flight. It just took 45minutes to arrive Yangon. At first, travelling by plane was my first experience so that I was excited and a little frighened. But when the plane took off I saw the little things on the ground, I enjoyed in the scene. In addition, the meal of air service made me delighted and fullfillment. I am looking forward to travelling by plane again.

I travelled by plane few times. I really enjoyed it. It's not so different then travelling by car or bus. I like the time when the meal and beverages are served. Huge benefit of travelling by air is that you can pass a long distance in such a little time.

I have travelled by air once when I went a company trip to Thailand. It was an amazing experience and I got nervous and feeling anxious at first, as I have never taken a flight before. But once I settled on the plane, all my curiosity have gone as the experience is not quite different with travelling by car or high way buses. The only exciting and happy moment I have got is when the plane took off and raised to the sky. It was the only memorable experience I got so far.

I have travelled by air many times. I often come back my hometown to visit my family on Tet holiday and on summer by air. On this vacation, I bought ticket air early because they were so expensive. Before pandemic, I travelled to some countries such as Singapore, Thailand, Myarma, Malaysia. The longest flight was to Singapore. It took me two hours to flight there.

Yes I travelled by plane and I love it. The longest flight I have taken was from my country to Germany. It was 7 hours. But I enjoy it, because it was my first time in Europe.

I love to travel by plane. Unfortunately in this pandemic period is difficult to do this. My last flight was from England to my country. You are flying about 3 hours. I was sad when I have been seen the airports with few people. Here I am talking more about the airport from UK. I know that all the time when I was flying to and from there was full with people. Now is sad with this pandemic period.

I noticed, there is tecknically no right answer to select to the question of where you can see all the flights, cause departures are only half of the flights on an airport.

Hi Finn Pete,

I've rephrased the question to make it clearer. Thanks for letting us know :)

Using iPad to fill the blancks the keyboard (on-screen) automatically starts with a capitol letter, which then result an error. Slightly annoying, but ofcource I now stand corrected. The longest trip I ever took was from Kahului, Maui HI to Helsinki, Finland, which took 38 hours and had four legs. The longest flight on my way was from Chicago to Manchester. That took 9.5 hours. The Red-eye from LA to Chicago was tolling allready before the intercontinental to UK. The direct distance from Hawaii to Helsinki is the longest possible, cause Hawaii is right on the opposite side of the World. Twelve hours apart by time zones. Longest ever direct flight has been Helsinki - Bangkok, Thailand, which took about 11 hours.

I travelled by plane many times, both for holiday and work, but my travels by plane are quite short (three hours, if at all), because I don't like the travels too much long-lasting, where i can't move around.

The best item of an air travel is reaching to the destination. I feel bad all time in airplane because of nausea! So I think travel with train is the best election. Its safe, cheaper than airplane and enjoyable...

Hello to all. I am a new user. Looking forward to learning english. Yes, I have travelled multiple times by air. The longest flight was of 15 hours duration, from Karachi to Singapore. I enjoy air flights. This gives an opportunity to visit and explore various national and international airports. Travelling by aeroplane is much safer, easier and quicker than other forms of transport.

Yes, I have traveled by air some times here in my country among cities, the flights aren't long, it takes forty-five minutes approximately. The longest travel I have made by air was Bogota-San Andres Island, I enjoyed it so much this travel, it took one hour and a half, it was so beautiful to see the see before and after the landing. The thing I most scare about a flight is the takeoff.

Yes. I travelled by plane. When I was 8. It was flight to Egypt (just couple hours). Our family prefer to travel by car. It is more comfortable and you don`t need to wait for your departure day if you want to visit another city or country.

Turn Out means to happen or become known to happen in a particular way What will be the best synonym here if I want to rephrase below this example • It turns out that she had known him when they were children

Hi amit_ck,

I'd suggest one of these options.

  • It appears ...
  • It seems ...
  • It transpires ...

The last option is formal in style. What do you think, do these options capture your meaning?

Best wishes,

Jonathan
