Hi,

In the first episode of the first season of LOST, before the airplane crashed, a black woman said "i've just never been a food flyer."

Does "a food flyer" in the above mean a pamphlet about food or something else? Thanks.

Is this something you heard? Or something you read?

Thanks, CaliJIm.

In deed, it's a question someone in our country asked in a certain English forum. And no one could answer it. And I was curious about it, and see if you know the answer.

If it was heard, it may have been heard incorrectly.
If it was read, it may contain a typo.

I wonder if it was supposed to be a "good flyer" -- someone who is quite calm and comfortable when traveling in a plane. The F and the G are adjacent on the keyboard, which is why I thought it might be a typo.

Thanks, Jim.

Got it!

I think you say it right!

What she said is "I've never been a good flier." Meaning that she is nervous or otherwise uncomfortable on airplanes.
