I'm afraid I have no travelled by air yet. I have only gone to airport to see someone off or to welcome other one.

I've traveled by plane many times. However, they are domestic flights, so the longest flight that I've ever taken is only 2 hours long.

Yes I did travel by air. My longest flight was from Istanbul to Nairobi in 2019. Before boarding on the plane I had expended some times in the duty free as I came earlier in the airport that day. It took us almost 7 long hours to reach our destination, fortunately the journey was pleasant as the hostesses were extremely kind and both meals were tasty.

i have never go to foreign country by air.

Well I love flying to travel long distances. It's fast and pretty cheap. For another transport service - a ship for example, or the train - is much more expensive.

A couple of years ago, I went to the United States of America, specifically, to Green Bay, Wisconsin. First of all, I had to get a plane from Arequipa to Lima, then to Houston, and finally, to my destiny. All of that, take me approximately 12 hours, considering the fact I waited for the departure of my flights at the airport of Lima and Houston. But, otherwise, it was a great experience seeing for the first time new places.

That's the reason because I choose a flight to one of the bigger cities. You can fly direct and enjoy a shorter traveling time. After a one or two-day city sightseeing I rent a car and start a roadtrip to the destinations on my bucketlist.

I have travelled by plane many times, but I always remember one special trip, from Shanghai to Santiago of Chile, were roughly 28 hours of fly due to transfer, first leg was Shanghai to San Francisco,USA, second leg to Miami and finally the third leg to Santiago, it was very very tiring, because one thing was the fly and the another was the change of hours zone, Chile have a difference of 12 hours with China.

Yes. I have been to Taiwan by plane.
This was my first time to travel abroad so I was nervous even at the check-in desk and the gate at the airport.
However, I could enjoy the meal of the plane and waching some animes on a small TV.
The trip itself was awesome but I wish I'd have brought a carry back as I had a big hand bag, which was uncomfortable.

I like traveling by plane very much, above all if it is a business journey. To flight is so comfortable, rapid and secure, moreover you can listen to music, watch a film, sleep or work during the flight. The only negative aspect is that you are off-line thus disconnected from the rest of world....but maybe it isn't a disadvantage at the end....

I have traveled by air for few times, most of the flights were domestic. The longest one I have taken was from Vietnam to the US, It took almost a day, that is also the first long trip that I took without my family. I was nervous because my English was not very well at that time but It was a great experience that I will never forget.

I haven't travelled by plane since the day I was born. But I have had a dream about it. In the dream, I saw myself is in the airport with my girl friend. Then, I realized that I had left my passport in the taxi which I had booked to go to the airport. So, I talked to my gf and then she kicked me and left. This is such a bad dream. =((

Why duty free in both airplane and plane

Hello Hala alawaj,

It's because you can buy duty-free products both in the airport and on the plane.

All the best,
Kirk
The LearnEnglish Team

The duties free in the airport are in the form of shops while in the airplane they are a magazine. You can choose from there and buy with the help of the air attendant.

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.
