5. A Christmas Flight

A: I need to fly to New York.

B: When are you going?

A: During the Christmas holidays.

B: You'd better buy your ticket now.

A: You must be kidding.

B: No, I'm not. It's March. Time is running out. Seats are selling out right now.

A: I thought I would wait until October.

B: I'll bet this is the first time you've ever flown during Christmas.

A: You're right.

B: Well, listen to me. You need to buy a ticket now.

A: But maybe prices will be cheaper in October.

B: Cheaper prices won't do you any good if there are no seats.
