Geschäftsreise auf Englisch - Unterwegs mit dem Flieger

Schlagwörter: Geschäftsreise auf Englisch, Englisch Geschäftsreise, Business Trip Englisch, Fliegen Englisch, Flight Englisch, im Flugzeug Englisch

Travelling by air can be a challenge — and not just because of the stress involved. As if being rushed for time, inconvenienced by procedure, and put through
irritating, invasive security screenings were not enough, you have to grapple with a wide variety of specialized phrases before, during, and after your flight.

At the airport

The language used in the airline industry is not only highly specialized, it’s also often
overly complex for no good reason. That’s why, when you get to the airport, one of
the first things you might look for is not a customer service agent, but rather a ticketing agent. If you already have your ticket, you’d look for a check-in agent or a check-in machine in the airline’s check-in area.

The check-in machines offer the fastest service these days. You can check in, get a seat assignment, and check your bags all at the same time without help from another
human being. After that you can head directly to the gate area, where the plane is ( hopefully ) already waiting for you to board. Be careful which line you stand in: ticketing and check-in areas — whether staffed by humans or machines ( in some countries, it’s hard to tell the difference ) — frequently divide passengers into first class, business class, and economy class queues.

If you’d like to change your seat assignment or need special assistance boarding the
plane, you’ll need to stand in line to speak with a check-in agent. In this case, you’ll
be speaking with a human:

I’d like to purchase a ticket for the next flight to London.

I’m checking in.

Can I see your ticket and passport, please?

Could I have an aisle seat, please?

Do you have any window seats available?

How do I get to the gate?

Just walk in this direction, go through the security area, and on the other side follow the signs for Gate 43. It’s at the end of the terminal.

In the security area

Even the most seasoned travellers feel uncomfortable going through airport security. As many times as they’ve been scanned and submitted to a pat-down,
airport security procedures seem to be designed to make you feel as if your personal space has been violated.

Please remove your shoes and jacket and place them in this bin.

Be sure to remove all metal objects from your pockets.

Please remove your laptop and turn it on.

Please wait for the next security agent to wave you through the scanner.

I’m sorry, but regulations do not permit this object to be taken on the flight and

I’m required to confiscate it.

Please place your left foot on the stool.

Now the other foot.

Please hold your arms straight out while

I conduct the scan.

You’ve been randomly selected for a thorough search. Please follow me.

Everything OK. Please collect your belongings.

Should I remove my belt?

Where do I put my money?

In the boarding area

In most situations, you’ll make your way to the designated gate and take a seat in the gate area. If you’ve bought anything at a duty-free shop, it will likely be waiting for
you at the airplane door for you to collect during the boarding process.

Unless you’re on the waiting list for a seat, you probably won’t need to speak with a gate agent. There are a few cases, however, when the gate agent is helpful:

Would it be possible to upgrade to business or first class?

Can I use my frequent flyer miles for the

I’d like to volunteer to be bumped. What kind of compensation do you offer for that, and when is the next flight I’d be able to take?

I still don’t have a seat assignment. Could you help me?

When it’s time to board the flight, you’ll be asked to proceed to the boarding area.
This is where people stand in line to board the plane. A gate agent will most likely
check your ticket and passport once more before you enter the jetway, which will lead you to the door of the aircraft.

On board

Phrases you may need while on board usually involve food, refreshments, entertainment, and seating problems:

Please stow your belongings in the overhead compartment or below the seat in front of you.

Would it be possible to change my seat?

I ordered a diabetic meal.

Tomato juice, please.

Do you serve wine?

Could you take my tray away, please?

Could I have another cup of tea when you have a moment, please?

Do I have to pay for a headset?

Please close your tray table and return your seat to the upright position.

Please keep your seatbelt fastened at all times while seated.

If you are a foreign national, please fill in the customs and immigration form that will be distributed during the flight.

At your destination

On behalf of North South Airlines, I’d like to welcome you to Punxsutawney.

Please remain in your seat while the aircraft taxis to the gate and is ready to deplane.

After passing through immigration and customs, you’ll be able to collect your bags at baggage carousel 7.

Do you have anything to declare?

Where can I get a taxi?

Where do I find the trains into the city?
