Ex.8 Look through the text from the point of its vocabulary.

Pat arrived at the airport two hours ago to catch her plane to Tokyo. At the check-in counter a ticket agent looked at her ticket and her passport. Her baggage was checked in / weighed on the scales. Pat's suitcases were very heavy, so she had to pay an excess baggage charge. Next she was given a boarding pass. The boarding pass has a seat number written on it, and Pat was given a window seat in the non-smoking section. Her suitcases were labeled and sent off to be loaded into the hold of the airplane.

While waiting for the flight to be called, Pat goes to the newsstand to buy a newspaper. Then she goes through the security check, where her carry-on luggage is searched. Then Pat goes into the duty-free shop where she has a chance to buy some things cheaply. The goods she buys here are cheap because they are not taxed.

In the departure lounge Pat joins the other passengers who are sitting and waiting until it is time for their flight to depart. After a few minutes Pat hears the announcement: "Flight 158 to Tokyo now boarding at Gate Three," and she goes to board (get on) her plane.
