Iceland volcano eruption disrupting flights across the world

April 15, 2010
Fares from Washington DC, District of Columbia:

    It is bound to be a chaotic weekend for international air travel as many major Western European airports are currently closed to all air traffic due to the eruption of Mt. Eyjafjallajokull in Iceland. This has already led to the the most flight cancellations there have been since 9/11!  No matter what happens in the next 24-48 hours, it is going to be very tough re-accommodating people. A friend of ours was supposed go to London tomorrow. British Airways is telling him it looks like Tuesday at the earliest. The airlines have to re-accommodate thousands and thousands of passengers but they only have a few empty seats. We're supposed to be headed for London on Sunday, but we're not holding out too much hope! If you are booked for Europe within the next couple days, you probably won’t be going anywhere fast.

    For your convenience, we have provided a list of links to travel waivers, statements, and other pertinent information that has been issued for travel to and from Europe.
