Hello. Passengers of flight 17 bound for Caracas, with stops in Atlanta and Miami. The departure gate has been changed to 30B. Also, there will be a slight departure delay due to inclement weather outside. The ground crew is in the process of deicing the wings in preparation for departure. It also looks like the flight is slightly overbooked, so we are offering complimentary round-trip tickets to a few passengers willing to take a later flight. We should be boarding about a quarter to the hour. Thank you for your patience.
Explanation of Answers
Correct Answer (C). Since the announcement deals with boarding location and time, the ticket agent at the gate would take care of this. The pilot and flight attendants make announcements after passengers board the plane.
Correct Answer (C). The plane makes stops in Atlanta and Miami, but the final destination is Caracas, Venezuela.
Correct Answer (B). The ticket agent announces that the departure gate has been changed to 30B.
Correct Answer (C). Since the ground crew needs to deice the plane, it must be cold weather, and hail (small chucks of frozen rain) could accumulate on the wings.
5. Correct Answer (D). The announcement says that passengers "should be boarding about a quarter to the hour." A "quarter to the hour" is another way to say fifteen until the hour, so the only possible answer would be 8:45 PM.
