Momentarily

I have seen a lot of discussion about misuse of this particular word in the last couple of weeks. Momentarily means the same as for a moment but a lot of people seem to be using it where they obviously meant something else. Obviously if a plane were to land momentarily it means that something has gone wrong and they’ve had to abort the landing just after the wheels touched the ground but that’s probably not what the cabin crew mean to imply when they tell you that.
