A. Listen. What did Jun do? Circle the correct answers. (CD 2 Track 42)

Ashley: Wow, Jun. you look relaxed. Did you enjoy the long weekend?
Jun: I sure did. Ashley. Actually, I took a big trip.
Ashley: Over the weekend? We only had three days off!
Jun: Yep, but I visited four countries in three days.
Ashley: What?
Jun: I love to fly. You might say I’m an “airplane freak.”
Ashley: That’s interesting. . . . Where did you go?
Jun: I visited Korea, Thailand, Singapore, and the Philippines.
Ashley: Sounds like you were busy!
Jun: I was. I had only four hours in Seoul, so I had to finish my shopping very
quickly. Sometimes I had to run between connecting flights.
Ashley: Wait a minute! What about your baggage? Didn’t you have to wait for it?
Jun: No, I didn’t have much: only one carry—on bag. It just fits in the overhead
compartment.
Ashley: So let me get this straight... you spent your weekend in an airplane? Flying
around?
Jun: Basically, yes. I fly standby.
Ashley: Standby?
Jun: Yes. As a standby passenger, I don’t have a reservation. At the last minute they let
me know if there is a seat available. They give me a boarding pass and I get on.
Ashley: All this flying must be expensive!
Jun: Well, I’m an airline employee. I’m a sales representative for Twin Star Airlines.
So I know most of the flight attendants and I can almost fly for free.
Ashley: Lucky you!
