5.航班取消 Flight Cancelled
Mr. Lee: Hi. I’m here for flight 513 to New York but I thought I heard the paging system announce that it is canceled. Is that true?
Clerk: I’m terribly sorry, sir, but I’m afraid it is true. That flight has been canceled. Would you like to try to book tomorrow’s flight?
Mr. Lee: No way! I worked very hard so that I could leave on today’s flight. Are there seats on another airline?
Clerk: It’s possible. If you would like to book with another airline the line is right over there.
Mr. Lee: You mean the line over there of about 200 people?!
Clerk: That’s the one. It seems that everyone is anxious to get to New York tonight.
Mr. Lee: This is a rotten way to start a vacation. I HATE lines! Can you book me on tomorrow’s flight?
Clerk: Certainly. You will also be receiving a 50% discount as our way of apologizing for the inconvenience.
