Das Flugzeug
Airplane in German

Now, here are the important questions that you will need when checking in at the counter (“der Schalter”). Listen to each word and its English translation and repeat the words aloud.

Some people prefer window seats, some want to sit close to the aisle. I always ask for a window seat, that way I can get a first impression of the city we are going to land in, from above. Whichever one you prefer, here are the German words for it…

Here are some possible answers you might get…

Wann muß ich am Gate sein?
When do I have to be at the gate?

Bis bald!
