Quote of the week

You may have read about the train fare that exists here in the UK that costs in excess of £1,000. The Newquay-Kyle of Lochalsh Anytime fare is more expensive than "a round-the-world flight via New Zealand, Thailand and Dubai".

Kyle of Lochalsh - an unlikely locality for a ticket costing £7 more than a Trans Siberian Express rail journey from Moscow to Beijing!

CrossCountry's response (for it was they!) was nothing short of amazing, informing the (now free) London Evening Standard that, "It doesn't matter because we've never sold one."

Oh, that's alright then! (GL)
