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!
