  1. something will / won’t fly: This is an idiom. When something “will fly” it will be successful or accepted by someone. When something “won’t fly” then it will not be successful or accepted by someone.
  2. turnout: This is an idiom. In the old days, shoelaces were called shoestrings and those were veery inexpensive. So doing something “on a shoestring” has the nuance that you are doing it for very little money.
