Hello Students! On Wednesday, August 13, I will fly to Kenya right after school. I will arrive on Friday morning August 15.
I am going with Andreas. We have a really long flight with four different airplanes! That's because I got a cheap ticket :-)
I take four flights all together.
Flight 1: Minneapolis/St. Paul to Detroit, Michigan
Flight 2: Detroit to Amsterdam, Netherlands
Flight 3: Amsterdam to London, England
Flight 4: London to Nairobi, Kenya
Please look at the world map in the hall. Trace the route with your finger.
I will tell you about our departure and arrival times in different cities. I will also tell you if there are time differences between the cities. Can you help me figure out how long each flight is?
Flight 1: We have to arrive at the Minneapolis/St. Paul airport by 1:11 p.m. We leave Minneapolis/St. Paul at 3:11 p.m. and arrive in Detroit at 5:59 p.m. There is no time difference between Minneapolis St. Paul and Detroit.
Flight 2: We leave Detroit at 8:55 p.m. and arrive into Amsterdam, Netherlands at 10:40 a.m. on August 14. The time in Amsterdam is 7 hours later than the time in Minneapolis/St. Paul.
Flight 3: We leave Amsterdam at 5:20 p.m. We arrive in London, England at 5:35 p.m. London is 1 hour earlier than the time in Amsterdam.
Flight 4: We leave London at 8:00 p.m. and arrive in Nairobi, Kenya at 6:30 a.m. The time in Nairobi is one hour later than the time in London.
