Hello gonna,

Actually, this term is in the 'Things in both an airport and a plane' category and that is correct. There are duty free shops in the airport but you can also often buy various duty free products on the plane itself. Actually, I find it quite annoying when the flight attendants try to sell me things during my journey. Usually I just want to sleep!

Duty-free is also used to refer to the goods that are bought in a Duty-free shop and then brought onto the plane.

Hello LearnEnglish Team,
I would like to ask you what is the difference between a "stopover" and a "pit stop". If you say that "you broke your journey" does it mean that you made a stopover, a pit stop or something else? Thank you in advance.

Hello DoraX,

In the context of air travel, we speak of a 'stopover' or 'layover' when we land in one airport and wait for another later flight there.

A pit stop comes from the world of car racing, but people sometimes use it informally to refer to a stop in a journey. Usually it's a car journey and usually people decide to stop to use the bathroom.

All the best,
Kirk

I've made a mistake... I had to post my questions under the "car" category for I was interested in that context. Can I repost it there or can I continue here my questions?

Hello DoraX,

Don't worry. Please just ask any new questions on the page that deals with cars.

Best wishes,
Kirk
