Model Answer 1 :

Introduction :

Well, air travel is the most preferred and universal means of transport these days, maybe because it is the fastest means of transportation. Although it is not a luxury anymore and becoming affordable, it might cost an arm and a leg for quite a few people, especially the middle class and lower-class people. I know a myriad of people who frequently travel by flights either due to personal or professional reasons.

Who this person is? and How do you know this person?

However, I would like to talk about one of my cousins, Sneha, who is highly enthusiastic about the airplane journey.

She is a couple of years younger than me, and I have been seeing her since my childhood.

Explain why this person likes to travel by plane?

I vividly remember that she always dreamt of travelling by flight as she wanted to experience how it feels to be on the top of clouds. And I always used to say that stop daydreaming as only affluent people can afford to travel by plane and it is not a cup of tea for people like us to meet these extravagant expenses. And I must admit that I have no regret that I proved to be wrong when she first boarded a flight with her parents to visit a faraway place, and she was on cloud nine. She was so fascinated by air travel that then only she decided to fly more often. Indeed, she moved heaven and earth to get a job of an air hostess(you can say a steward or pilot/co-pilot in case of male) in one of the renowned airlines and was in raptures as her dream came true. During her internship, she used to tell me about her amazing in-flight experiences of flying up in the air along with different passengers, excellent amenities, comfortable journey, outside views from the window, and on-ground glamorous life.

Conclusion :

Overall, she was extremely content with her job as she got an opportunity to travel by flight frequently. Now that she is travelling quite often to various destinations, and sometimes abroad, she rarely able to meet us, perhaps only once in a blue moon. She is relocated to New Delhi, she always shares her pictures and experiences with me on WhatsApp and tells me how satisfied she is. I think because it was her dream, she is passionate about air travel.
