Oh, no -- maybe I didn't convey what I meant -- I know (and appreciate!) how you keep the running record of which dates fall when and how they relate to each other.Originally Posted by Bloomers;3879248;
What I was trying to say is that maybe the intended first HTD was always Tampa. To get to Tampa from Lisbon, they would've had to connect in London or Paris or Newark. To connect in London or Paris is cheaper and this may have been their first inentions, but those cities were affected by the ash. SO, if their flights were canceled/delayed, they could've opted for direct flights straight to Newark, if only to get themselves back on American soil.
I'm sure by the time the flights were booked, Ali knew which 4 she'd be visiting. However, the ash was a last-minute complication. SO, if a baseball stadium had already been booked and closed to the public (or whatever), I bet they would've kept that date instead of rearranging it to suddenly pop into Boston since it was closer to Newark.
I hope I'm making sense.
