    The differences between the synonyms

    Hello,Dear teachers !

    Could you help the beginner to understand the difference between synonyms in some words ?

    Here are the sentences:

    1.I've never been on a (long-haul) or (long-distance) flight before.I've only flown in Europe.
    2.There's no (direct) or (straight) flight to Geneva,but you can fly to Luton and catch a (joining) or (connecting) flight from there.
    3.It's only a (small) or (short) flight from London to Paris.
    4.Charter flights are generally much cheaper than (scheduled) or (timetabled) flights.
    5.There was a lot of turbulence,so we had a pretty (bumpy) or (shaky) flight.It wasn't quite as (level) or (smooth) as we had expected.

    Much obliged.

    We don't help with homework. Your teacher wants you to work out the answers. She doesn't want you to simply ask someone else to give you the answers.

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
