1.Booking tickets 定票
Mr. Lee: I would like to buy a ticket to New York please.
Ms. Booker: When do you plan to travel?
Mr. Lee: I’d like to pack my bags and leave tonight.
Ms. Booker: Are you aware that without two weeks advance notice prices will be very high?
Mr. Lee: Yes I know, but I just got the chance to leave and so I am going to take it no matter what.
Ms. Booker: I understand. So that’s one ticket to New York, and you’ll be departing tonight. Will that be one-way or round trip?
Mr. Lee: I wish I could stay there, but unfortunately it will have to be a round trip ticket.
Ms. Booker: When would you like to return?
Mr. Lee: My return date will be the 14th.
Ms. Booker: OK. I have several seats available. Would you like a window seat or an aisle seat?
Mr. Lee: Anything but a center seat is fine with me. The middle seat drives me crazy!
Ms. Booker: OK Mr. Lee. I have you booked on flight 513 leaving on the 5th at 11:00 pm and arriving in New York on the 6th at 6:00 pm. The return is flight 514 leaving on the 14th at 8:00 a.m. and arriving in Beijing at 12:00 noon on the 15th.
Mr. Lee: Will there be any layovers?
Ms. Booker: No, all flights are direct.
Mr. Lee: Perfect! I’m afraid to ask, but how much is it ?
Ms. Booker: $800 dollars.
