‘Jet Hag,’ ‘Business Ass’ Top New Travel Terms

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – If you’re going on a trip soon, don’t be surprised if you run into a “jet hag” or a “business ass.”

Those are two of the new travel terms coined by the website and they’re not very flattering.

That’s because a “jet hag” is an overly dressed, overly perfumed woman who is hoping to land a man during her plane flight and a “business ass” is a schmo who dresses up in his best business suit in hopes of getting upgraded.

Other travel terms that are “plane” mean include “frequent liar.” That’s a person who constantly boasts about traveling to places he or she has never been.

Meanwhile, if your skin dries up and gets a greenish appearance after a long flight, it’s “deflydrated.”

Finally, people probably don’t need to brush up on their “screamese,” which is the loud form of English that tourists use to speak with foreigners.
