I just posted a WL'd book and the person it posted to had a lengthy RC.  I'm fine with the usual RC's.  But this one had a new one that I had never heard of.  In addition to non-smoking, no water damage, book cover in good contition, etc.,  she had - No Flight Damage.

Being that I never heard of it I had to say no and pass it on to the next person.  Can anyone please explain "Flight Damage?"

"Flight damage" isn't a term I'm familiar with, but I did get a question about that once (as a tour guide) and I think the requestor said she was referring to warped pages.

yeah, that's a weird phrase I've not heard of either. Bet the member gets a lot of requests rejected.
