ネイティブとの会話:旅行出発日をどうするか【海外旅行】

スクリプト:

So my question is about the date of the departure. 

Oh, departure date, yeah.

Because you said you talked with them…

The 14th of September, that’s what I said to…

Basically, I agreed that I was going to leave work at the end of September. 

Yeah. 

But I still want two and a half weeks’ holiday to take. 

Yeah. 

…which means that in theory, we could leave, I think, the earliest date would probably be the 13th, maybe of September, something like that.

When will be the last day actually working? 

The 30th September. The 30th of September is my last day of work, but in theory, I would use my last days of holiday, so my last day of work will be…, when we leave here…, do you understand what I mean?

We don’t have to leave immediately? 

No. We don’t have to leave immediately. No.

Also it (depends) the price of the flights as well? 

The price is fine.

Really?

Yeah.

Which company is. it…? Air Canada?

If we want to buy a one-way ticket, the cheapest is whether air Transit, which is $400 for one way, or we could use points on British Airways or we can use miles on Aero plan. I think at the moment is about 32, 33,000 plus 67 Canadien dollers.

Okay.

In a way, I’d like to save the points, save the Aero plan because…it’s kind of like good to have an emergency or a good backup. 

Yeah.

I need to work out, I think, the value of that ticket…,yeah,  It would be maybe better to take the air transit flight from London. Maybe it’s about $400. I think, it’s one day, but I think, it’s like 370 or something.

But the price is pretty much the same at the time of the year. Is that what you mean?

Yeah, seems to be. The thing is if you travel British Airways or Air Canada, the only other two airlines who’ve got direct flights from Montreal, they don’t give you…, your one-way ticket is not half of the return ticket. They don’t price it like that, they price it so it’s like more expensive. So it’s like 630 one way and the return is 850 maybe.

Is that the flight to Gatwick Airport? 

Air Transit has to go to Gatwick.

Okey.

It’s ok, we flew with Air Transit to Cuba, didn’t we? I think? 

Yeah, we did.

I flew (with them) to London before as well. That’s okey. Don’t need to worry about food and drinks on the plane because I’ve got lounge passes so we can eat and drink at the airport before we go and then just go to sleep, I believe. 

Yeah, that’s good. 

In theory. Right. 

Is that a night flight?

Yeah, it’s always, from Montreal.

So you are thinking of departure on 14th.

Oh, what do you think? What are you thinking?

I don’t know. I didn’t know when your holiday starts.

You obviously weren’t listening to the conversation that I was talking to you the other day. 

When?

I told you more than once, my official leaving day is the end of September. 

Yeah, I know, but you said sometimes you have holidays eleven days or more.

I said that I had twelve and a half days, yeah, I did say that once. 

Okay. Anyway, it is clear now. 

Yeah. 

If you go to my mother’s house, I don’t actually mind working a little bit because…

No, but you don’t want to bring in your computer. You shouldn’t. 

I can leave it in my mum’s house.

But you have to go back definitely before you come back to, before you’re starting work. 

Yeah,… 

Forget about the work. I know you are a hard worker, but It’s not a good idea. I think we should spend more time with our mum’s as holiday, yeah?…
