The next time you're flying American Airlines from London Heathrow, look at the window. You may see salmon loaded as cargo. Lots of it.
Every year, American flies millions of pounds of salmon from London to the United States, according to a recent story in the airline's employee newsletter. About 40 percent of it goes to Los Angeles - we love our salmon - and much of the rest goes to New York, Dallas and Miami. American spokeswoman Leslie Scott tells me most comes from Scotland.
American's newsletter gives an estimate of how many million pounds of salmon the airline carried from London in 2015, rounded to the nearest hundred thousand.
Can you guess that number?
I have a great prize for the person who guesses closest to the actual number, a Rimowa-branded ANA First Class Amenity kit. As kits go, this is about as good as it gets. (Apparently, ANA has discontinued the Rimowa partnership, so this is a collectors item.)
Leave your guesses in the comments section before Wednesday, Jan. 20 at 10 a.m. PT. As long as you live in the United States, I'll mail a kit to you.
If you work for American, or have seen the newsletter, try not to guess. Let's let others have a chance.
