After takeoff, Kathy and Evan are reading magazines when the pilot makes an announcement.
C:Good evening, everyone. This is your captain speaking.
I'm Captain Rogers, and my crew and I will be piloting this 747 aircraft from New York to Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
K:I can't believe we're on our way!
C:We're presently at an altitude of 28,000 feet ascending to our cruising altitude of 35,000 feet.
The weather looks pretty good over the Atlantic,
but we may experience some turbulence over the British Isles.
K:Uh-oh. I hate choppy air!
C:You may have noticed that I turned off the "fasten seat belt" sign a few moments ago.
If you like, you may get up and move about the cabin.
However, the crew and I advise you to keep that seat belt fastened in case of turbulence.
We keep ours fastened, and we hope you will, too.
K:That makes sense, doesn't it?
C:After we reach our cruising altitude, I'll give you the weather report for Amsterdam.
Until then, sit back and relax and enjoy our famous KLM service.
Thank you and out.
