Travel to France

A-plume-of-ash-rises-from-002Last couple of days I was at LAX trying to go to Paris. Our flight was canceled three times, so we gave up our trip.
Currently we don’t have a lot of French phrases for an airport situation, but we hope some new phrases will help people.

More phrases for an airport situation are available.

“What time is the first flight tomorrow” in Portuguese

“Is that the last flight out?” in Italian

この数日、パリに行くためにロサンゼルスの空港に行っていました。3度私達のフライトがキャンセルされたので、今回の旅行をあきらめせざるおえませんでした。現在、マイティーバースには、フランス語の空港のプレーズは、あまりありませんが、いくつかのフレーズがフランスの空港での人の手助けになることを祈っています。

“What time is the first flight tomorrow” ポルトガル語

“Is that the last flight out?” イタリア語
