Hi everyone, welcome back to The Art of Business English. With the holiday season quickly approaching I thought that it would be a good time to help you with your time at the airport. In today’s episode we are going to be looking at vocabulary and expressions to help you check in to a flight when you’re at the airport.

I am sure many of you know that this part of the journey can be a little stressful, lots of people, loads of questions and sometimes you are running late. If you don’t understand things this can make you even more nervous and nobody likes being nervous when they are at the airport.

 

So, if you have found yourself in a situation where you are being bombarded with questions at check in and don’t understand what you’re being asked then this episode will definitely help you to feel more comfortable and confident.

 

To make this episode even more useful, I am going to give you some advice on how you can deal with checking in late and what you can say to get to the front of the line.

 

So, in today’s lesson you will learn the following:

  1. Vocabulary and expressions at check in
  2. Typical questions you are asked and how you can answer them
  3. How to deal with being late

 

Right, let’s get started with some vocabulary and expressions.
