When I go to an airport, the airport announcement announces 'boarding a plane' than 'getting on a plane'.
Because they say in public places all the time, I start to feel 'boarding' is a more formal word than 'getting on'.
Let's say I talk with a friend and the friend asks me what I'm doing.
If I say,
I'm boarding a plane.
Does this make the mood a bit unfriendly?
Instead, do I have to say
I'm getting on a plane.
