    Book me a round trip ticket to Chicago by/on plane.

    Suppose you are a boss at some multi national company and you ask your personal secretary to book you a round trip ticket to Chicago by/on an airplane. How would you say it?

    Book me a round trip ticket to Chicago by plane.
    Book me a round trip ticket to Chicago on plane.

    Re: Book me a round trip ticket to Chicago by/on plane.

    Are there other ways this important person might get to Chicago? I doubt it. More likely today, a boss would say, "Get me a flight to Chicago." If there was some reason she didn't want a round trip, it would be up to her to provide further details/instructions.

    The natural way to say this (assuming the boss has to specify "plane") is Book me a round trip plane ticket​ to Chicago.
