If you were flying in close proximity of the volcano (max 200 Miles) I would have agreed. The ash cloud isn't even visible on satellite images and radars only show something barely visible. Propeller driven planes also don't reach the same speed as a jet, so I don't think that a little ash will sandblast their windows either.

Any one with common sense knew it all along, it was just a game of panic football! More confirmation that this was a hoax:
Astronomer calls fear for ash a hype

Haven't got the time to read if this has already been suggested as a possible "reason" for the mass-grounding of air traffic. If so, just ignore.

Could it be, that the rather spectacular eruption has been used as an excuse to ground all air traffic across Europe in order to study the impact of airline travel on the environment? Or, if you want to take this a step further, are they testing how effective their spraying efforts are?

Think about it, this is one of the few possibilities to get a "control" reading for whatever it is they wanted to measure and blaming it on a natural disaster provides the perfect excuse to gather such data for a couple of days.

There are already news stories popping up about how air traffic effects temperature, also referring to the grounding of air travel during 9/11.

Also, this could provide them with very valuable information on how to cope with the general loss of air travel in case of, for example, prolonged solar flare activity making it unsafe to fly in a similar manner they claim it is right now.

Just my 2 cents.

The biggest problem with the ash clouds involving airplanes is that there is no way to know positively for sure what the ash is exactly going to be like, that the planes will be flying into. Even with a test plane giving a safe level and safe type of ash, the volcanic ash level in the air may change quickly without any warning to a very unsafe level later when the larger passenger plane arrives into the ash cloud.

Also, the ash is known to remove the paint from off of planes. There may possibly be some very expensive safety types of paints on some of the planes.

"Remember that ash cloud? It didn't exist, says new evidence"

"These models should have been tested by the Met Office's main research plane, a BAE 146 jet, but it was in a hangar to be repainted and could not be sent up until last Tuesday - the last day of the ban."

so what was it all about?

I knew it al along and it gets more and more confirmation.
It provided a good insight in who's a debunker and who's not here at ATS.
