    Stevia Sweetener ?

    It's taste is sweet with a hint of bitter (to me the bitter part resemble the taste of liquorice extract). The degree of bitter depends on the stevia plant used and the refining process. I like stevia in tea. I don't sweeten coffee.

    15 airlines warned over high-altitude ice

    A big part of that order will probably be leased to other airlines. NAS is at 10th place in Europe when it comes to number of passengers, and only 2 European low-cost carriers are bigger (Easyjet and Ryanair).
