"Puddle jumper" nghĩa là gì?

"Puddle jumper" = nhảy từng vũng nước -> nghĩa là loại máy bay cỡ nhỏ tầm ngắn.

Ví dụ
On our puddle jumper from Seattle to Spokane, I was too tired to sleep. I fidgeted (bồn chồn) nervously with my third Purell packet. I was still trying to process what I’d seen that day: Sharing a terminal with passengers who all seemed to be traveling to a funeral.

I flew from Japan to Toronto on March 1, finishing that journey on a puddle jumper to Ottawa. Like many Canadians, I have been dolefully (buồn thảm) wondering when I might next board an airplane.

In the title role (vai diễn), Grier plays a $16k a year flight attendant on a puddle-jumper airline, who's also a bagman (người chào hàng) for the ruthless gun dealer Ordell, played by Samuel L. Jackson.
