  • different things because it's basically to ask for things on the airplane

  • sometimes we need stuff so the way you can ask is can I get a...

  • and then the object you could also say could I get blah blah blah or could I

  • have the only difference is that if you say can, it's a little bit more informal

  • and if you use could well the opposite a little bit more formal and then let's

  • see some examples excuse me can I get a pair of headphones please good

  • headphones you know if you're going to watch a movie and remember it's not

  • about calling the flight attendant there is a button that you can push that will

  • inform the flight attendant that you need something so after you push the

  • button wait a little bit the flight attendant will come to you and then you

  • can ask then if you can explain something if there's a problem excuse me

  • airplane maybe you are going to need some help okay so here are some

  • questions that you can ask if you need help

  • question number two can you help me with my seatbelt please so basically you are

  • going to start with can you help me with my seatbelt please do you know seatbelt

  • you know the thing you have to put on before the plane takes off it's

  • mandatory wear a seatbelt if for some reason you can't fasten your seatbelt

  • you can ask for the flight attendant's help it's normal I have seen many people

  • having problems with the seatbelt sometimes

  • first-time Flyers you know if it's your first time flying abroad it happens

  • don't feel sad or embarrassed it happens it could happen to anyone push the

  • button so that the flight attendant can know you need help and then they will

  • really cool tips anyways back to the lesson right so number three another

  • thing that can happen maybe your seat is stuck if you watched my previous videos

  • when we are about to take off our seat needs to be on the upright position okay

  • not in like when we're resting sleeping no on the upright position so it could

  • be stuck you know like you can't put it back you can put it back up so if you're

  • having problems to put your seat back up in the upright position you can ask for

  • the flight attendant's help it could happen okay

  • airplanes always do a check up on all seats to make sure that everything is

  • working properly but hey maybe you're nervous maybe it's

  • your first time traveling and maybe it got stuck even if for a moment so all

  • you gotta do is push the button the flight attendant will come and then you

  • can tell them look I can't get my seat up could you help me with that

  • could you help me put my seat up right okay so these are some things you can

  • say and they will definitely help you basically the word help will be used in

  • a lot of questions here on the airplane okay question number four if you're

  • having problems to put your carry-on luggage inside the overhead bin or

  • overhead compartment you can ask for a flight attendant to help you with that I

  • have had problems with this in the past and all I did was to ask them excuse me

  • could you help me put this bag in the overhead compartment please excuse me

  • could you help me put this back inside the overhead bin please now make sure

  • that you have the proper size for the carry-on luggage because if it's too big

  • then you may need to just check it before you board so always check the size of

  • your carry-on luggage but if you're having problems to put it inside maybe

  • it's too heavy and you're old and you're not strong enough to lift your carry-on

  • luggage and put it inside ask for help and you don't even

  • need to call the flight attendant maybe if someone is around hey ask for help

  • okay nice another thing that is very common

  • and may happen is when people want to change seats maybe you're traveling with

  • a friend and this friend is sitting somewhere else and you want to sit next

  • to this friend so you can ask the flight attendant about that okay it's not a

  • guarantee that you will change seats but after everybody is seated the flight

  • attendant can check if it's possible to find you another seat so one way to ask

  • that is excuse me would it be possible to change or to switch seats with

  • someone my friend or my boyfriend and I would like to sit together so you can

  • give a little explanation my friend and I would like to sit together so would it

  • be possible to change or to switch seats with someone basically they will check

  • one thing that they may tell you is it may be possible but I will have to wait

  • until the plane takes off okay you may have to wait a little while but if you

  • need to ask this question there you have it and finally, food! you know everybody

  • complains about airplane food you know that it's awful it tastes horribly but I

  • kinda like it I love this moment I get very excited when I'm traveling so I

  • enjoy every single moment how about you let me know here in the comments do you

  • like the airplane food so asking about food number six

  • what time will dinner be served and you can say what time will breakfast be

  • served or what time will is snacks be served what time will refreshments be

  • served it depends on the time of the flight if it's a long flight which

  • usually happens at night you may have a dinner and a breakfast if it's a shorter

  • flight you may get just snacks you know just some refreshments so you

  • can ask that now one important thing for people with restricted diets if you are

  • on a kosher diet if you are vegetarian or if you are

  • intolerant to gluten and lactose to request special food I believe that most

  • of the times you have to do this before you board before you go check in ok, you

  • do this online and then you request a special meal ok so check with your

  • airline if you are that kind of person check it online to see if you have to

  • request it before I'm pretty sure you do and then make sure to confirm it at the

  • time of the check-in before you boardboard

  • you can't just request a special meal they may not have it ok now if you requested

  • a special meal and there was a problem you can inform the flight attendant

  • excuse me but I requested a kosher meal excuse me but I requested a vegetarian

  • meal so this is something you can tell them if you get the wrong meal finally

  • if you are tired of sitting on an airplane and wait for your destination

  • to finally be there question 7 can help you with that how long before we land

  • very simple and short question push the button they'll come and then

  • you say hm how long before we land and they will tell you sir approximately 2

  • hours or we will be landing in about 20 minutes in some more modern airplanes you

  • can already check that okay there are some screens there are some TV screens

  • in front of you where you can watch movies and TV series and you can also

  • check the flight details but if you are old-fashioned like me you can just push

  • the button wait for them to come and ask this question yourself there you go now

  • you're ready you can talk to anyone anywhere anytime including the flight

  • attendant this may seem like silly questions but I've traveled before and I

  • have seen people having problems to communicate efficiently with flight

  • attendants so if it's your first time traveling everything may be new and

  • challenging so these are the most important questions you must know to

  • have a very nice and pleasant flight okay which new words did you learn in

  • this video let me know in the comments and if you found this video useful how

  • about sharing it with someone thank you so much friends and I'll see you next

  • time bye
