And how he/ she feels about it
Band 8 Sample
(Who he/ she is) I think this person would probably be my brother, who works as an engineer for a multinational corporation.. Due to his works, he has to travel by air on a regular basis.
(Where he or she goes) His company has some important clients around Southeast Asia, namely Singapore, Cambodia,… or even in Europe. He is usually on business trip to meet clients, attend meetings and tackle some severe problems
(Why he or she travels by plane )Well, I think the main reason why he opts for travelling by plane so often is that it helps him save time and he is able to finish with works with high efficiency, compared to trains or night buses which might bring him a sense of discomfort. He even told me sometimes he got the chance to fly 5-star airline at such a good bargain.
(And how he/ she feels about it) He obviously really enjoys the service on the plane compared to other means of transportation. Every flight is always accompanied with an in-flight meal and water. He told me that the hospitality of flight attendants always brings him a sense of comfort and relaxation when travelling between countries. However, sometimes he also suffers from jet lag in long-haul flights and turbulence when the plane is flying to bad weather areas.
