Landing Lips

Updated: 2017-03-27.

Landing lips, in airline parlance, is a term originally referring to when flight attendants (overwhelmingly female in the past) would put on their lipstick and other makeup to make themselves presentable to passengers as they bid them farewell on the way out. Today, passengers also use this term to mean that they are getting ready to deplane.
