    I heard this as well - they where saying it could possibly erupt for a couple of months.

    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.
    what about the food importers? BBC news is reporting one company is losing 100k a day as the food is sitting in brazil rotting!

    meaning then the hotels/resturants could be hit as some types of veg can't get here etc

    I am watching the Chinese Grand Prix at the moment. However preparations for the next race [Spain: Mat 9th] may be hampered by the on going eruption.

    Take the time to learn how to pronounce Eyjafjallajökull correctly!



    Also: An animation made freely available by the Norwegian Meteorological Institute showing the spread of the ash spewed forth by the eruption of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano.

    Yellow indicates ash that has fallen by itself, red ash that has fallen as a result of precipitation, and black where the ash cloud is at that moment in time.



    Prediction portion of the animation valid until Wednesday 21st.

    Tracking Flight Cancellations Due To Iceland Volcano

    NewYorkTimes has designed an interactive tool that tracks flight cancellations based on airports and countries. A nice colorful map shows you which airports have all flights canceled (marked in red), which airports have some flights canceled (marked in yellow) and which airports are open (marked in green).

    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."
