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.
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...

The thing I most scare about a flight is the takeoff.

I have travelled by air 3 times. It's a marvelous experience and joyful thing. My previous flight wasn't as long as much .It only takes 2 hours or less.
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,

Hello everyone. My name is Dong, I'm from Vietnam. Today I want to share about my experience when I go to another country by plane. That is Indonesia. That was the first time I got in the plane so that I felt nervous and scared. But with my curiosity all that feeling disappeared as soon as the plane took off. I tried to look down at the fields and houses. Suddenly I feel sad, I realized that I had to left my country for a new life. I thought that was everyone's common feeling. I had to fight for my choices. Furthermore, I didn't get plane-sick,but I couldn't eat, sleep and my ears wasn't comfortable. I finally arrived. Thanks be to God. So many things I want to share with you but I have no time. Thank you for your reading. I wish you a Merry Christmas. The Child Jesus and Maria be with you all.
I travelled to Thai 1 year ago. I was checking and did everything in this unit. That's a wonderful time. Cause that is the first time i go abroad. Even I can't speak Thai language , but there are many people use English and Vietnamese languages. I went to Safari park which is the largest Park in East Asian. Many type of wild animal i didn't see before. My trip last 3 hours, so it seem comfortable when i was on plane.
The first time I traveled by plane when I moved to Germany. It took 20 hours from Vietnam to Germany. I got a plane-sick. I couldn´t eat anything and sleep on the plane. It was horrible. Now, I travel more often. So I don´t get sick anymore. I´ve already traveled to Turkey, Thailand, Indonesia. I really love traveling.
