"Traveler" is also the name of a jetliner assembly step that cannot be completed per plan and so "travels" with the airplane as it moves down the assembly line. A traveler almost always results in expensive and time-consuming rework because other components that were installed per schedule often have to be removed in order for the traveler to be installed. So at Boeing a "traveler" is a Very Bad Thing.

Your trivia for the day......
