  • Good Afternoon One Stop English!

    Could you please tell me what One of Scale means in paragraph 12 of the Upper Intermediate paper Why Airlines are Cracking Down, the Guardian.
    I can't seem to find the expression anywhere.
    Kind regards and thank you,
    Veronica

  • Hello Veronica,

    Thank you for your comment. The phrase 'one of scale' in paragraph 10 of the Upper-intermediate worksheet refers to the comparison between cheap flight tickets within the US and expensive international flight tickets. The cheap tickets only lose the airline a small amount of money (which can be said to be a 'small scale' problem), but the expensive tickets lose the airline a lot of money (a 'large scale' problem). A 'scale' is a range, from small to large.

    We hope this helps.

    Best wishes,

    The onestopenglish team
