Our kid is stuck over in Italy mate.
The first time since 9/11, that a total fly ban over Uk air space has been put in action.
First - they refuse to pay us back the Dosh that their Banks lost, now they send us over a load of dust.:)

My mates brother was on the first Ryan air flight this morn and they actually said over the tannoy that the flight may be a bit bumpy due to the atmosphere. Absolute clowns.

Best option would be ferry/tunnel then train.

I tried the A-team but apparently Murdoch was a bit tied up and some black guy they know aint getting on no plane so i'm kinda stuck there too....

The latest we've heard is that the BAA and NATS are going to re-assess the conditions at 6pm but so far BA and Ryanair have cancelled all flights till tomorrow am earliest.

trying to sort out two minibuses for a road trip but not looking good so far....

When's Ash Wednesday ?
It moves around, it is a number of weeks before Easter.

I was waiting for the "I have heard of Ash Wednesday, but this is ridiculous" jokes... :p

Dan, driving for sure - Slovakia (from London) should be a 'doddle' - but, do book the Channel crossing a.s.a.p. ! ...

And make sure you have a vehicle with plenty of BHP, to take advantage of the Motorways \ Autobahns ...

Update at 8 this evening with a view to information whether flights will be possible tomorrow morning. Keeping my fingers crossed as I have a flight to Belfast booked for Saturday morning.

If the ash affects aircrafts then what is it doing to our lungs if we are breathing it in.

At least Pottsy will be having an easy few days whilst we all worry about flights.

Don't worry about your lungs.
Unless you are trying to breath at 30 000 feet, in which case you have other things to worry about.

I have a feeling Mr P is not in the best of positions either...

....... If the ash affects aircraft then what is it doing to our lungs if we are breathing it in .......
The 'ash' (which isn't actually ash at all, but lots of nasty and potentially corrosive mineral 'ejecta') is blown into the higher atmosphere, where airliners travel, and can be quite concentrated in places ...

Normally, it will dissipate through the lower atmosphere, as it settles to earth (and have negligible or nil effect on people \ animals \ plant life - BUT - if we were to have a "Krakatoa" type \ size eruption, then 'all bets are off' ...

Think about air travel being effectively shut down for a year or more, plus the earth cooling significantly (due to the 'dust' blocking the sun) and crop harvests being reduced all over the world ! ...
