I’m sure I’ll take you with pleasure!’ the Queen said. ‘Twopence a week, and jam every other day.’
Alice couldn’t help laughing, as she said, ‘I don’t want you to hire ME – and I don’t care for jam.’
‘It’s very good jam,’ said the Queen.
‘Well, I don’t want any TO-DAY, at any rate.’
‘You couldn’t have it if you DID want it,’ the Queen said. ‘The rule is, jam to-morrow and jam yesterday – but never jam to-day.’
‘It MUST come sometimes to “jam to-day,”‘ Alice objected.
‘No, it can’t,’ said the Queen. ‘It’s jam every OTHER day: to-day isn’t any OTHER day, you know.’
‘I don’t understand you,’ said Alice. ‘It’s dreadfully confusing!’in reply to: BA, WT Ice Cream, WTP No Ice Cream16 Feb 2018

A321LR has superceded the so-called B797 to the Atlantic (and Hawaiian) routes and will the latter aircraft catch up? Its 2 aisle cabin and base on the B787 may make a difference eventually to comfort and Business class. For now Welsh wings do the work!
There was an interesting piece in Bloomberg yesterday about the B797
The company is targeting the market gap between the largest narrow-body and smallest wide-body aircraft. One would seat 225 travelers and fly about 5,000 nautical miles — from the midwestern U.S. to Europe, for example. A larger sibling would seat 275 and cruise about 4,500 nautical miles.in reply to: A321LR makes first transatantic test flight today14 Feb 2018
“From tomorrow, Norwegian begins the first ever low-cost route from the UK to South America which will break the monopoly on flights between London and Buenos Aires.
The airline also plans to give UK passengers onward connections to cities around Argentina and Latin America as it prepares to launch new domestic services in the country after receiving an Air Operator’s Certificate from the Argentine authorities.
London-Buenos Aires will increase to a daily service this winter.”13 Feb 2018

The system doesn’t allow me to see who has made the Report, just the fact of it being made.
Periodically I go through and unreport most of them, but as you could see from the Forum this morning, the priority is on deleting all the spam we get.
