Customer: Are there any cheap flights to Florida this weekend?
Travel agent: Yes. There is an early morning flight to Miami on Sunday. It's with Air Quebec. It leaves at 6:55 a.m. The return fare is only $199, plus airport taxes. certain conditions, however. You must return on a Saturday or a Sunday, and the maximum stay is 14 days.
Customer: It's a bit too early in the morning for me. a later flight?
Travel agent: another flight with the same company at 11:40 a.m. It's more expensive, though. The return fare is $302, plus taxes, but no restrictions.
Customer: No, that's too expensive. Can you check to see if any seats available on the early morning flight.
Travel agent: Of course. How many in your group?
Customer: three of us, two adults and one child.
Travel agent: Let me check the computer. Ah! Here we are. You're lucky. four seats left at that special price. And when would you like to come back? a return flight on Saturday at 3:40 p.m. and one on Sunday at 11:30 a.m.
Customer: We would like to come back in two weeks, on the Sunday flight.
Travel agent: lots of seats available for the return flight. Shall I book the seats for you?
Travel agent: With taxes, that comes to $704.
Customer: $704! Surely a mistake. The fare is only $199.
Travel agent: Yes, that's true, but an airport tax and the usual sales taxes. Are you still interested?
Customer: Yes. We would like a seat in the no-smoking section. Is it possible to choose our seats now?
Travel agent: Normally, yes, but a problem with the airline's computer. They will assign your seats at the airport. But don't worry. Air Quebec flights are all no-smoking. In fact, very few airline companies that still permit smoking on their flights.
Customer: Do you know if a bus to the airport at 5:30 in the morning?
Travel agent: Yes, . The fare is $10. three in your group, so that's $30. You can take a taxi for the same price.
Customer: That's a good idea. Thank you very much.
