Start the exercise

Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

- Easyplane, hello. How may I help you? - Hello, I was supposed to take the plane tomorrow morning at 9.45, but something has come up at the last minute, and I wanted to know whether it was possible to change my ticket. - Yes, it is possible, but you'll have to pay a change fee. As it is less than sixty days before your flight, a ticket change will cost you 43 euros plus any potential price difference between your new ticket and the old one. - OK, I don't have a choice in any case! - May I have your name as well as your booking reference please? - Yes of course, My reference is B26794 in the name of PATRICE DUFRESNE. - Thank you very much. I can see your booking on my screen. When would you like to leave? - The day after tomorrow would be perfect, if you still have seats. - Yes, we have a flight at 8.15 am. Is that acceptable (to you)? - That's perfect, I'll take it. Thank you very much!

Getting that for you now...
