Although I think the correct English sentence would be, "We must book a flight." "We must to" sounds odd. Apologies if it was a sort of typo or for demonstration.

In English I don't think 'we have to book a flight' and 'we have a flight to book' are interchangeable, but I couldn't explain to you why. Anyway, 'we have a flight to book' would've been the translation of 'we hebben een vlucht (om) te boeken'.

Is "We must to book a flight" wrong? The scrolling tip tool displays "must" as an alternative for moeten.

"must to" is gibberish.

You can either say "We have to book a flight" or "We must book a flight". Other examples: I have to go to bed or I must go to bed; You have to eat your dinner, or You must eat your dinner.

I have the same question. Would "must" be correct on this sentence? It makes sense in English.
