    Our Chinese fellow members can explain
    The Chinese number system is different from our decimal system.. and try as much as you can, not to ask a Chinese to add or multiply numbers more than 1000. he can readily get confused because he must first convert your number to Chinese format, then do the arithmetic on it.. and this takes considerable time.
    The attached picture shows that my ticket from Shenzhen to Yiwu, a domestic flight was $1.2 Billion! and I had 90 options to get to the airport! that was a long to time ago, you can tell from the mobile phone model.
    This is a confirmation SMS (text) message shortly after completing my reservation

    "90 options back" means 90 minutes before. (I realized later)

    options / back are the buttons

    right top button is back and left is options, you had to scroll down to see what else was written in your SMS... :)

    I forgot the airliner message format, they send you a confirmation text with the money you paid, a summery of your itinerary and when you should arrive at the airport.
    My memory is not perfect but this was about the standard notification format of that airliner.. not about the phone itself.
