Updated: 2017-11-30.

In airline parlance, “bottle to throttle” is the time that a member of the flight crew has between the time they must not have another alcoholic beverage and the time of their next flight; often 12 hours.

Bottle to throttle often means that a flight attendant or other flight member must just go straight to the room, “slam-click,” if there is too short a time between flights.
