I never travel by a plane. I live in a small town. Travelling by plane is expensive in my country yet. I wish to fly, but I don't get opportunity.

Hello!
Why does duty-free belong to Things in both an airport and a plane? Is there any mistake?

Hello proshkinadezhda,

Duty-free shopping is often available in both airports and on international flights, or at least it was last time I flew. This is why it belongs in that group.

All the best,

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.

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.

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 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.
