jet people
 n.pl.— «The situation in Europe and North America is, in this respect, preoccupying, because it is clear that the “jet people” of today are not receiving the same sort of welcome as the “boat people” of the 1970s or the “land people” of the 1950s on this continent.» —“Opening Statement By The High Commissioner To The Informal Meeting Of Permanent Representatives In Geneva Of States Members Of The Executive Committee Of The High Commissioner’s Programme” in Geneva, Switzerland UNHCR Mar. 26-27, 1987.
