Ash closes airports in Spain, Portugal, Italy


www.msnbc.msn.com

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.

Well I thought for some reason we would be out of the woods by now with the volcano.

Yet it continues to spew ash into the air. Hopefully Katla will remain dormant in the coming months.

I read however, that the ash posed no real thread to aircraft and that airliners had done test flights and didn't report any problems.

Any truth to those statements?

What say you ATS?

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.

That's a good point.

They would try to keep flights operating regardless of conditions eh?

All about the benjamins is right.
