    Do you know who has it?

    What is a FTer (Flyer Talker?) and FDer?

    What YMMV?

    What about OJ or DOJ?

    What acronyms are you looking for? And who the heck... stole the acronym guide?:mad:

    :D

    It would be a good candidate for a wiki-page. There are many abbreviations used on these boards.

    I think we need a tool like the Google translate toolbar that translates as we place the cursor pointer over the Acronym ! Any of you hi tech geniuses want to take a crack at it?

    My sources tell me the acronym guide is being hidden in FL* Lounge. I think it's on page 1968.
    Or maybe it's 1986.
    Could be 1689.......
    Or 1869
    Just read all the posts. I'm sure it's hiding there somewhere. :p

    It definitely belongs on page 1968. That was the summer of love.

    I think this is a great idea. I know most of them, but there are a few I scratch my head at.

    I found it!
    If you go to page 1968 in the FL* Lounge and listen to the ABBA video (yes, the FL* Lounge features some amazing content :D), you will find the first clue about where the acronym guide is hidden.

    Actually, it is "hiding" right in front of you and always has. Called "Glossary", if you look under "More" in your top bar navigation, it leads you here.

    YMMV is there, so is BRT. DOJ and OJ hasn't made it since OJ was in the Ford bronco and not a 777 or A-330 and the DOJ is just not the same with us frequent flyers as the DOT or the FAA (both included)—unless you really get tangled up in the DHS or more appropriately the TSA, which is a part of the DHS.

    Anyway, let us know things that seem appropriate to add. Thank you.

    Clearly the kitties have some work to do. :p
