Our businessman friend, Peter, has sobered up and accepted the exciting offer of touring the factory he is considering buying product from in China. But he's got to get there first. Since China is a little bit bigger than he had anticipated when he booked and then subsequently cancelled the 52 hour train ride to get there, listen in and learn along with him how to book a plane ticket in China using Mandarin Chinese. That's the easy part. The hard part will be when you start to get picky... extra pillows, window seat, caesar tall and neat, more peanuts... for that you're on your own!
