Thanks for that one...
And alright now, this is prying on my mind. I'm not claiming it to be as big a problem as world poverty but still it's an issue!

That's a good question, but perhaps not one that the yacht owner ever feels the need to ask himself.  However, for all we know, maybe he is a great philanthropist ....  on the other hand .... Rolling Eyes

Looks like there's every possibility that ash cloud could sporadically lasts for weeks... what on earth will our airlines do if it does Think

I'm surprised BA shares are not taking a hit, this could lose the airlines so much money if it is a long term problem.
They are now.

  And what will happen if the larger volcano close by is triggered into action too. I believe it often follows with an eruption of its own? Hope it's cleared by September!

If this continues much longer, Airlines will start folding. SAS are planning to lay off 2,500 people on Monday - and that will just be the start. I would also expect to see shortages of some food and bread starting quite soon...

There are some great live pictures here.

Yes - I was reading about the turmoil in the scheduling with planes plus crews stranded in parts of the world where they ought not to be.  A "spokesperson" was stating that the airline companies cannot afford to hire contract planes to go and collect the crew/s and that re-scheduling so many (mostly long haul) aircraft is an absolute nightmare.
