Used in a sample sentence: “We’re sorry, your suitcase was crushed by a 747 out on the ramp.”
Definition: The ramp is the area closest to the terminal where planes and vehicles are active such as the aircraft parking zones.
Again, this is a relic from the early days of aviation. “In the early days of aviation, many aircraft were amphibious seaplanes or floatplanes. If a plane wasn’t flying, it was either in the water or it was ‘on the ramp,'” Smith wrote.
This is me back again. Have you flown Etihad Airways yet? I am dying to fly them but haven’t had the opportunity yet. Everyone I know who has flown them, even in coach, says that it is absolute luxury!
If you have flown with Etihad please leave me a comment below, and tell me about your experience!
