They have the same meaning. I actually prefer the first.

Operator: Good morning. Domestic service speaking.
Operator: One moment,please,I'll check to see if there is a seat available.
My answer is "I want to book a seat to Phuket on Thursday." but the correct answer is "I'd like to make a reservation on this Thursday flight to Phuket" .
Why is it incorrect ?,I think they have the same meaning.
How to use book and reseve? Can they be used in the same way?
There's nothing wrong with your answer to me either. I'd like is more polite than I want, but that doesn't make want wrong.
"On this Thursday flight" doesn't sound right to my ears at all.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
Good point- I was focused on the start and missed that. Thursday's flight would work, but the answer given as correct doesn't.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
