definition of flightmare
an unpleasant experience during air travel. A blend of the words 'flight' and 'nightmare'.
Flightmares go well beyond the usual perils of airline travel such as crowded seats, lost luggage and food not fit for a dog. A flightmare usually involves lost money, lost opportunities (such as missing a graduation or a funeral) and lost dignity.
