    Does this mean a schedule or an oblication? "be supposed to" is sometimes confusing.

    W: It’s orange with a checkered pattern.
    M: I see. I have one purse matching your description. What’s in the purse, ma’am?
    W: Some cash, two credit cards, and even mypassport. I’m supposed to fly to Mexico tomorrow.

    Re: Im supposed to fly to

    It's a planned event so a schedule. She has an airline booking to fly to Mexico so it's important she find her passport. It might ​have been an obligation too (her boss may have insisted that she fly to Mexico) but that is not stated in the piece.
