Thanks. I've looked at your code and I can't see what's wrong with it. It's
always easier to find bugs in code if you can execute it.

you should be aware of the exact meaning of "@pnr != '7000'" - it means "if
the pnr attribute exists and has a value other than '7000'. Writing "not(@pnr
= '7000')" has a different meaning when the attribute is absent.
