Hell, Barb -- I can't remember what I had for breakfast yesterday, much less what flight I took 16 years ago1 :). I can guess that it was probably American -- they had a routing BOS-SLC-SJC that I used going to stay with friends in Oakland, so I might have flown into OAK, which case I have no idea what carrier I took. On the gripping hand, I also had a soft spot for Delta, because they served Pepsi products, and at that point in my life I was quite brand-loyal. Now I'm old and my taste buds have all died, so I'll drink just about any brown cold fizzy beverage. Except Moxy.
1 I do remember "tipping" a skycap fifty bucks (see why fifties are my preferred currency?) to gate-check my several enormous boxes to avoid the $30-per-piece oversize baggage charge. Other stuff (like the MicroVAX Look, ma: back on topic for AFC! and miscellaneous clutter from Eli's) I shipped Greyhound Freight. That gave me a few days to find a place to roost before my junque started showing up needing a place to be put.
