TO GET ON THE PLANE I USE "THE FINGER"!!!???
When I first heard this I was not sure what to think. In English, we have the expression "to give someone the finger" (which is rude) so that was the first thing that popped into my head but as I continued to ask questions about "the finger" I started to understand that it was, in fact, a piece of equipment to help passengers get on and off a plane.
Not being very knowledgeable about airport infrastructure, I was not exactly sure how refer to this correctly in English. After doing a bit of research (investigación) I found out that the correct way to talk about "the finger" in British English is: "air bridge".
Hope that helps!
