lucky i returned to the UK 1day before all this happend!!
We have just been informed that we have friends due to fly out of the UK comming to Aus. Flying BA and Qantas, he spent 2 hours on the phone to be told he will fly on May the 8th.
THREE WEEKS TIME!
Needless to say this throws his travel plans in the bin while he try's to re-schedule everything from car parking spaces to Insurance.
according to a news report i just read, airspace above Britain, Sweden, Norway, Germany, France, and northern Spain was closed, yet Icelands airspace stayed open!
We have friends in England that had booked a holiday to Mexico. their insurance wont pay out because its an act of god and that it is a clause in the policy.
My mum was due to fly out from the UK on Saturday but was called by Singapore airlines on Friday and told that they had rescheduled her for Wednesday, which wasn't too bad as it meant that she would arrive on her birthday. The way things are going (or not going) it looks like that's optimistic too :(

Hi All, just wondering how you are all doing. Our flight was cancelled for the second time on monday and now booked on a flight for the 3rd May which seems along way off, how long can this thing go on for. Had a bit of hope the volcano was easing up yesterday but the cloud of ash is meant to be back again this afternoon.
Relieved we are at home with my parents not in some random country. Good luck everyone Vicky
