    Is 'on' necessary?

    I will be available in the office (on) Wednesdays and Thursdays.

    Is 'on' optional? Or it is better to have it in the sentence? Is it a case of British vs American English?

    I believe 'on' is needed in BrE, but usually left out in AmE. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Hi
    I would say that it's a matter of being formal & informal in using English Language. That is, In our day to day speach we can drop "on", or else it has to be there, gramatically speaking.

    Cheers
