How to use reservation in a sentence?

  1. Chairman Frazier:

    We invite you to join us in protecting the lives of our people and those that live on this reservation. I regretfully decline your request.

  2. Robert Rector:

    Essentially it says we will let the illegals come in and take all of the jobs and then we’ll put American workers onto a kind of welfare reservation where they can live out their lives on that reservation.

  3. George Hobica:

    Airline staff have been given a lot more power and have become policemen in the skies since 9-11, i think many are abusing that authority. Most of your rights and company policies—including when you are entitled to compensation for your inconvenience— are spelled out in the conditions of carriage which can be found on an airline’s website. The lengthy terms are filled with jargon and legalese, though they’re still worth eyeballing to understand the basics. Here are key reasons why an airline can bump you or otherwise make travel difficult for you: 1. The airline priced tickets for this flight too low.If a carrier realizes through its electronic reservation system that a non-stop flight fills too fast, that could indicate the ticket fares are too cheap. In such a case, your flight could be switched from a non-stop to a connecting flight. 2. The air marshal needs your seat. Because air marshals protect the public, they are sometimes seated in first class without prior warning. If one of them shows up and needs your seat, you can be bumped, reassigned to another seat, or put on the next available flight. And you won’t even get an explanation; the government doesn’t want you to blab that there’s an air marshal on board. 3. The carrier abandons the route. Consolidation within the industry has prompted some airlines to cut back on the number of available flights. Some, such as Allegiant Air and Frontier, have also abandoned routes that are no longer profitable. An airline should be required to put you on another carrier for the price you paid, says Hobica. But that’s not the case.

  4. Assistant Attorney General John Cruden:

    To this end, we are committed to eliminating barriers, such as these, which hinder The Tulalip Tribes from developing healthy economies and providing necessary governmental services on the reservation.

  5. Ms Kinnie:

    (Ms Damond’s fear of guns) was her biggest reservation about moving to the (United) States, like, there was no question about how much she loved Don — he was her beloved, he was her wish come true. She was just so excited to be starting her life with him and to be engaged with him and become part of his family and become a mother to Zach but she was worried about moving to the States and worried about how different things are in comparision to Australia and with the gun laws ... it’s a real shame that she has left us in that way.
