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.

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.

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.

In Cristma 2017, I took a flight to Dominican Republic, my daughter and I took a plane Madrid to Paris, and then waited for 3 hours in France. We took another plain to Dominican Republic and when we landed in my home country, I drove about 3 hours by car, it was a large travel.

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.

Yes, I travelled by air, but the flights were of maximum four hours from Buenos Aires to Lima. I enjoy travel and know the stores at the airport, although sometimes I have waited many hours for a connecting flight.
