She went with Mauretania from Liverpool april 13. I have heard it so many times that she was SUPOSSED to go with Titanic, but why was it changed??? Titanic was not fully booked. Do anyone find a reason why she went with Mauretania.
Was it cheaper? Was it a faster journey? What was the estimated arrivaldate for Titanic?
Regards from Lars in Västerås, Sweden

Well, there was a coal strike at the time of the sailing, so many passengers were moved over to the Titanic. What more can you tell us? I know Titanic was slated to arrive on the 18th, and leave for Southampton on the 20th.

Well, there was a coal strike at the time of the ship's departure, so, many of the passengers were transfered from other ships to the Titanic. The ship was slated to pull into port on the 18th and leave for England on the 20th.

edit: oops! sorry for the double post! I got a busy signal from my end saying the site was taking too long to respond! If possible, could a mod please remove my second post?
