I took sansa in 91. boards were last ones on and first ones off, no fee. Party flight. everyone was drinking (free), and standing in the aisles.
Ya, I remember going to Costa Rica on American in 93' and it was like that. Smoking was still allowed on flights back then and the back of the plane really was a party. They kept the booze at the back of the plane too and would just hand the bottles out right and left. I was literally drunk getting off the plane and going through customs in San Jose. Customs guy didn't even ask me a question, just stamped the passport and said have a good time. It was fun until 4 hours later when we're hungover and halfway lost at night no less, trying to find the place we were staying near Salsa Brava. Still can't believe we finally found it.
