Thread: Anyone else already affected by flight cancellations due to volcanic ash?

  1. #1

    Default Anyone else already affected by flight cancellations due to volcanic ash?

    Have colleagues who are stuck in Paris cos the airspace has been shut down...

    Man...I sure hope the volcano decides its had its fun, and stop spewing anymore

    I dun even dare to book my ferry tickets and trains in Greece/Turkey now for my trip the week after, altho my accommodation has all been booked...

    Fingers crossed...

    I really hoped you got a contingency plan on hand.

    Yea that sucks...dun really have a contingency plan. The only way is probably to cancel the flights and the accommodation. Spent a LOT of time planning for the trip, researching the places to visit and accom etc, just very worried.

    TV presenter Dan Snow is using five rigid inflatable boats to help people who are stranded in France by carrying people from Calais to Dover throughout Sunday
