We were just discussing the knock on effect of this on not just the airlines, but industries that serve them - in-flight meals and taxis for example. And what about the shops and catering at airports? No passengers means no customers.
meaning then the hotels/resturants could be hit as some types of veg can't get here etc

Experts warning of new Icelandic volcano eruption
Link: Experts warning of new Icelandic volcano eruption
When the Eyjafjallajokul volcano erupted in April, it dispersed a massive cloud of ash which affected more than 100,000 flights and eight million passengers. However, Keflavik Airport spokeswoman Hjordis Gudmundsdottir said, "It is near impossible to say if Grimsvotn erupts whether it will have an affect on air traffic at all, If it is an ash eruption, then it would affect air traffic, but only if it is a strong eruption with ash clouds reaching significant heights, it will also depend on wind, so at this point it is hard to guess."
