Mine came about because that flight number was the one of my so far last flight. It's been over 8 years now since I've flown and because of the airline.
LTU is the airline I've had my first Transatlantic flight with (it was MIA-HAM). 932 is the flightnumber of the since 1998 axed DUS-MIA-SJO flight (LT932). I still remember that same flight later continued on to San Andrés, when we deboarded in SJO.

mine is pretty prosaic really - my name is Andrew and I am from New Zealand - "Kiwi" in addition to being a flightless bird , a defunct airline and a tasty fruit ( I just know I am going to get some comments about that last one ) is a colloquial name for a New Zealander

Quoting AirPacific747 (Reply 14): here's a better question for you (perhaps stupid) why is your flag the libyan? is that because you like the green color, are you in Libya or do you originally come from Libya? lol
Some friends of mine and I have had a long-running joke about how great Libya's flag is...nice and simple.

I was a lead on the QX IT/Rates/Prepaid desk when I joined, I needed a user name, I'd just got done sending an offline PTA, so I used the first thing that popped into my head, our TTY address. It's supposed to be all caps (SEARPQX) but I wasn't paying attention when I typed it in, and it ended up as it is.
