touch time
 n.— «We’ve got new 717s, the Boeing 717, the average age is just a little bit over three years. And then we’ve got the older but very reliable MD80-series aircraft, and certainly as aircraft age, they require a lot more hands-on time, and I just want to make sure that we have adequate resources so that we are giving those aircraft all the, what I call the “touch time,” that they need.» —“‘We will not cede market share’” by Avrum D. Lank Journal Sentinel (Milwaukee, Wisconsin) Mar. 2, 2008. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
