The airline industry, like any other, has a specialized dictionary.
These are words and phrases that are used commonly by airline
employees for which the meanings may not be obvious to outsiders.
A herding creature of widely varying intellect, usually found in
pairs or small groups. Often will become vicious and violent in
simple and easily rectified situations. When frightened or confused
these creatures collect into a group called a "line."
This "line" has no set pattern and is usually formed in inconvenient
places. Passengers are of four known species:
Paxus iratus, Paxus latus, Paxus inebriatus, & Paxus ignoramus.
More will follow - (eds)
. That's it for this time, please we need your input, send
comments and email addresses of any others who may be
interested to Vesta with a copy to Terry.
