Here’s a new term for you: Nerd Bird. According to an article on Wired News, it is the “unofficial term” for flights to and from high technology locations such as Silicon Valley.
The article refers to the Silicon Valley Slang Page which defines a Nerd Bird as “Any weekday direct airline flight between Austin, Texas and San Jose, California. There are many engineers and technical types regularly on this flight since there are so many hi-tech developments in both cities. It is also known that a good amount of job seeking and rumor milling occurs on this flight.”
