“The scale of this crisis is now greater than 9/11 when US air space was closed for three days. In lost revenue alone, this is costing the industry at least $200 million a day. On top of that, airlines face added costs of extra fuel for re-routing and passenger care – hotel, food and telephone calls.”  said Giovanni Bisignani, IATA’s director general and CEO. 

You can read the rest of Bisignani complaints here http://aviationblog.dallasnews.com/archives/2010/04/european-union-conferring-on-w.html.

You sir, are a jackass. 

Inconvenience caused by a volcanic ash, is not a target terrorist attack.

No one knows with 100% of accuracy if a plane will be impacted by ash depending on its flight path or elevations.  If one falls from the sky due to a rush to judgement, I guess he will know.

Maybe he is tired of looking at the mostly clear skies? Maybe the conspiracy of an invisible cloud has passed?  Maybe the reports by NATO’s F-16’s showing engine damage aren’t enough to convince him to wait a few days? Maybe he’s just ignorant?

I know with 100% accuracy that the nearly 4,000 or so people who lost their lives on September 11, would love to be stuck sitting alive somewhere waiting for a ride home.  Maybe Bisignani doesn’t know anyone on the list who died?  Did you?http://www.cnn.com/SPECIALS/2001/memorial/lists/by-name/index.html

That one day changed forever how the world looks at everything from airport security to terrorism.  It took civil liberties away in the name of safety so much so, that many of the U.S. airports now require an X-ray of your body, let alone your luggage. 

To make a comparison to the quiet skies on the days following 9/11 is one thing.  To compare financial devastation and inconvenience in an effort to mitigate a solution, is absurd.

Just whose fault is it that there was no emergency volcano ash plan in place?  Giovanni Bisignani, IATA’s director general and CEO, that’s who.

Eyjafjallajökull Ash Plume. Icelandic Met Office

VOLCANO ASH CHAOS, ROYAL NAVY TO ASSIST

Volcanic eruptions from the Eyjafjallajokull glacier have wreaked havoc on European air traffic as the invisible, sometimes visible ash cloud has caused thousands of flights to be canceled. 

The same lack of efforts by government officials can been seen as far back as Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans and as recent as Haiti where thousands still live on mud floors awaiting assistance. 

At least the Icelandic Met Office issued a slight sigh of relief yesterday:   

IMO’s radar near Keflavik has not detected the plume from Eyjafjallajökull since 08 o’clock this morning (sunday), which implies that it is below 10,000 feet (3 km).  There are no reports on ash this morning. Seismic tremor has been ongoing and is at a strong level this morning. http://en.vedur.is/about-imo/news/2010/nr/1881

All is far from calm.

In Iceland ALARM ALSO FOR OTHER THREE VOLCANOES – Meanwhile, Semra in Iceland, is alert for the volcano Grimsvotn, Which lies under the largest glacier in Europe, Vatnajokull. In the area of the volcano were recorded small earthquakes and the conditions are very similar to those that preceded its last eruption in 2004. According to experts, could return to erupt in the next 24 months and the risk is that of a new “joklahlaup”The phenomenon of the pressure caused by water ice cap explodes above the main crater and produces a devastating lava river. A risk is also ‘HeklaThe volcano’s most famous (and feared) of Iceland, which since 1979 has been launched as an eruption about every 10 years, his last in 2000. But the immediate concern is even greater for Katla, A volcano which lies east of the glacier Eyjafjallajokull and with a long history of volcanic activity, often preceded by its eruptions of volcanoes nearby. It ‘a very dreaded volcano, named “Big Brother”‘ sEyjafjallajokull. “If bursts – Admits subheading Sigried, The head of the local Red Cross – will be a tragedy … nothing but delays at airports. Would be flooded and the island could be a catastrophic climate change “.  translated, http://peppecaridi2.wordpress.com/2010/04/17/prosegue-l%e2%80%99eruzione-del-vulcano-eyjafjallajokull-in-islanda/

There are ways and means to get back to the UK other than flying.
Here is just a small selection:

You can still watch the eruption through the clouds on both the Vodafon and Mila.is webcams. Vodaphon updates every 6 seconds.

Stay tuned.  Most likely, you are staying put.
