Perhaps there's a legal licensing reason for it, but I'm surprised I haven't heard about enterprising shipowners advertising for transatlantic passengers.

The thing is we quickly got to the state where it appeared that the transatlantic flyways were going to be shut down for a while. A trip by ship may very well have been faster. Granted, there aren't that many transatlantic passenger liners out there, but any ship which was already scheduled to do a crossing with freight or otherwise could have taken a few passengers for extra gelt.

I just checked, by the way, and you can get aboard the Queen Mary 2 in Southhampton 2 days from now an be in New York a week later -- a regular, scheduled, transatlantic passenger liner crossing.

Had a ship been available when the British Skys were closed, the brother would have won the race.
