    Exclamation Take them off

    Hi,

    I have booked two seats on the plane, I need to take them off now.

    Is this sentence correct?
    Is the usage of "take them off" appropriate?

    Thanks

    No. To take them off, you are implying that you are physically removing the actual seats from the plane.

    The correct way to say it is:"I have booked two seats on the plane, and I need to cancel that booking."

    I am not a teacher.
