不好意思,能不能借我过一下,我想去趟洗手间…等一下好了,空服员像是要送餐了。

Excuse me, could you let me pass? I need to go to the bathroom...actually, I can wait a bit, the flight attendants seem like they are about to serve our meals.
您先去吧!趁空服员还没送到我们这边来,您赶紧去吧!没事儿。

You go ahead! Go before the flight attendants come to where we are, you go ahead! No worries at all.
回到座位)谢谢你!他们果然还没送到我们这儿来,你真是专业乘客,你常飞北京吗?

(back at the seat) Thanks! You're right! They haven't arrived here yet. You really are a "professional passenger". Do you often fly to Beijing?
其实我是第一次到中国,有点紧张,听说有些地方宰观光客宰得很凶,连从机场打车到朋友家我都担心,不用说其他食衣住行的问题了。

This is actually my first time in China. I'm a little nervous. I hear that some places really try and rinse tourists. I'm even worried about getting a taxi from the airport to my friend's house, let alone all the other problems I'm going to have with my entire time there.
