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
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.
