ESL Podcast 1173 – Flying on a Budget Airline 

Anton: It’s amazing that we were able to get these airline tickets so cheaply. 

Federica: It’s great, isn’t it? We can fly to Lawrence City for a fun weekend. Let’s check in using this kiosk. 

Anton: Hmm, this is asking me to pay $50 to bring a piece of luggage aboard. I didn’t know there were such strict baggage restrictions1

Federica: I didn’t realize it either. 

Anton: And we have to pay another fee to reserve a seat. I didn’t know that the default2 was open seating. 

Federica: Me, neither. 

Anton: Did you know that we’re not flying directly to Lawrence City, but making two stops on the way? 

Federica: Oh, no! 

Anton: And there are other hidden fees for what they consider add- ons, things we would normally get for free on other airlines, like a soda3, snack, blanket, and in-flight entertainment? 

Federica: No, that’s news to me. 

Anton: Here’s the kicker. We’re not flying into Lawrence City Airport but to a remote airport 60 miles away. We’ll pay a lot for ground transportation to our hotel. Should we get a refund4 and forget about the trip? 

Federica: Sorry, one thing I do know is that there are no refunds5 or changes allowed. 

Anton: I should have known flying on a budget airline would be like this. It doesn’t seem like such a good deal now, does it? 

Federica: No, this airline has turned nickel-and- diming into an art form!
