Are There Any Seats Left On That Flight?


SCENARIO
Imagine you are talking to a relative, a friend or colleague. Maybe you have just bought flight tickets to go to Barcelona. The other person may now be considering taking the same flight, but is uncertain about seat availability. At some point, the other person says to you something like: "are there any seats left on that flight?"

In Spanish, the other person could say:
¿Quedan plazas en ese vuelo?


OUR TIP
The question is an invitation for you to say whether or not there are any vacant seats on the flight in question. Your reply depends only on whether you:
  • Believe there are seats available;
  • Believe there are not seats available;
  • Don't know if there are seats available;

Here are some examples of how you could reply:
  • Sí, creo que quedan plazas en ese vuelo (yes, I believe there are seats available on that flight).
  • No, creo que no quedan plazas en ese vuelo (no, I don't believe there are seats available on that flight);
  • No sé si quedan plazas en ese vuelo (I don't know if there are seats available on that flight);

Now you should practise answering the question:
¿Quedan plazas en ese vuelo?
