Geschäftsreise auf Englisch - Travelling by plane

Schlagwörter: Geschäftsreise auf Englisch, Englisch Geschäftsreise, Business Trip Englisch, Englisch Flughafen, Englisch Fliegen, Englisch Airport

Even for most native speakers, flying can be an interesting vocabulary experience. The airline industry seems to have invented its own variation on the English language.

Some of the terminology comes from Aviation - the field of engineering having to do with flight. Some of it appears to have been coined simply for the purpose of making your flight experience feel, well, like an experience disconnected from normal life. Something special. Something scientific. For example, in the world of flying, customers don\'t get off the plane. Passengers deplane. How many of these phrases do you recognise?
