Last summer, I took a flight to Ho Chi Minh city with my family. It's precious memory. My family were invited in my cousin wedding. On this occasion, we had a good chance to visit Sai Gon which is a beautiful city. The most interesting thing that made a great impression on me is food. It's really delicious. People there are very friendy, open and enthusiastic. They have a soft accent. I like there. I hope to comeback oneday.

I took a flight to London in may. It was great! I chatted with my sister and a guy sit next to me. It was fun and London... was wonderful! *.* I'm looking forward to taking another flight, I hope to Brasil! I'd really like going there! It's my dream.

The last time I took a flight was last year, to Ha Not, Viet Nam with my mum and my teacher. It was interesting trip.

Hello!
I took a flight to Singapore and it was really an amazing trip. By the way, when the woman announced the flight number to Amsterdam KL1050, it was confusing, I heard that it was KN1050.

I've never been aboard before so I never heard the annoucement at the airport
....umm .. just ask why use "would " and "will" at the begining of the sentence even though it is not a question...

Hi ion,
That's  a good question. We use 'would' and 'will' to make requests as well as to ask questions. So in the announcements the speaker is requesting the passengers to do something. Watch this grammar video as it will give you more examples of these modal verbs. http://learnenglishteens.britishcouncil.org/grammar-vocabulary/grammar-videos/can-could-and-would-invitations-offers-requests-and-permission

The last time I took a flight was six months ago when my parents and I went to Paris to visit my uncles. I sent a great time with my family!
