20 Years Ago on Sept. 17, 1998 -- Airline Strike Over

September 17, 1998: The graphic promo headline references the 1998 Northwest Airlines pilots' strike, which grounded the airline for two weeks. Despite appearances, it's not a news story, but rather a promotion for some sort of Travel Web Center feature.

The Starr Report remains in the third spot.

[Series note: In the late 1990s, I programmed the content for the home page, which relaunched with a new design on July 14, 1998. I printed screencaps and saved them. 20 years later, I'm scanning them in and posting them with a little commentary under the tag #20YearsAgoOnAOLcom.]
