BRUSSELS - A plume of volcanic ash snaked its way through southern France, Switzerland and northern Italy Sunday, shutting down airports and disrupting flights across Europe.
Weather forecasts said the ash cloud will gradually weaken as it spreads to southern parts of Germany, the Czech Republic and Austria by Sunday night. The ash, stretching from the surface up to 20,000 feet, has forced the closure of airports throughout much of northern Italy.

airlines will always try and put the best spin on things to protect their bottom line. with that said, if you feel uncomfortable getting on one of those flights, do the research and don't listen to the airlines take on it. it's all about the benjamins.
