Pillow. Blanket. Earphones.

English: Pillow. Blanket. Earphones.

French: Oreiller. Couverture. Écouteurs.

These are a few common items requested on airplanes.

Pillow=Oreiller (m)

Couverture=Blanket (f)

Écouteurs=Earphones (m, pl)

You may also hear passengers say “couvert (m)” instead of “couverture”. This is technically incorrect as "couvert" (though a real word in French) does not mean "blanket."

Avez-vous une couverture?

Désolé. J'en ai pas.

Avez-vous un oreiller?

Désolé. J'en ai plus.

Avez-vous des écouteurs?

Un moment SVP. Je vais vérifier.
