frequent flyer
 n.— «They call them “frequent flyers”—the thousands of battered and bruised women crowding Queensland’s accident and emergency wards and filling our courts. After being stitched up, their condition is officially listed as “blunt trauma, face.” They are released and more often than not return home for a repeat beating.» —“Sad ‘frequent flyers’ in a life of abuse” by Paul Weston Sunday Mail (Australia) Mar. 21, 2004.
