Were There Seats On That Flight?


SCENARIO
Imagine you are talking to a relative, a friend or a work colleague. You are talking about a past event/ activity. The event/ activity in question relates to a flight reservation you have made. The flight will be at some point in the future, but the reservation is already made. The other person wants to know if there were seats available on that flight when you made the reservation and says to you something like: "were there seats on that flight?"

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


OUR TIP
The question is an invitation for you to say whether or not there were any seats available when you made your reservation. Here are some examples of how you could reply:

  • Sí, quedaban muchas plazas en ese vuelo (yes, there were many seats available on that flight);
  • Sí, todavía quedaban muchas plazas en ese vuelo (yes, there were still many seats available on that flight);
  • Sí, quedaban algunas plazas en ese vuelo (yes, there were some seats available on that flight);
  • Sí, quedaban muy pocas plazas en ese vuelo (yes, there were very few seats available on that flight);
  • No, no quedaban plazas en ese vuelo (no, there were no seats available on that flight);
  • No, ya no quedaban plazas en ese vuelo (no, there were no seats available on that flight/ all seats were already booked);
  • No, no quedaba ninguna plaza en ese vuelo (no, there were no seats available on that flight);
  • No sé si quedaban plazas en ese vuelo (I don't know if there were any seats available on that flight);

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