I don't know if all you girls are aware of this but it's huge news over here. Due to the volcanic eruption in Iceland last week, all flights are grounded and airports closed in the UK and there are hundreds of travelers stranded here, and UK travelers stranded elsewhere.
Here's the latest news on it if you'd like to have a look:
I do know someone who was stranded! My friend who lives in Germany flew to London the day before and they had one heck of a time trying to figure out how they were going to get back. As of Friday morning, Eurostar was 100% booked through Monday and I don't think they could afford the cost of the rental car and then having to ferry it over the Channel. The last she posted on her Facebook was from last night saying they were about to start on their journey to Brussels, so I don't know if they were able to get Eurostar tickets after all or what. I think a friend was going to meet them in Brussels and drive them back to Germany. Meanwhile, someone in Germany is watching their kids! Could you imagine being stranded away from your kids??
I don't think the air travel restrictions are excessive, but I don't know a whole lot about it. It seems from the links you provided that the airlines are crying about it, but of course they are...they're losing money. I wouldn't get on a flight through the cloud until I was certain all of the right safety precautions had been taken and that the data from the test flights proved everything to be 100% safe to fly.
