Icelandic Volcanic Ash

Last December, when record snowfall was predicted, Heathrow was made to look rather foolish by announcing they expected flights to continue operating with only minor delays.

Today, they announce that we need not worry about volcanic ash from Iceland – “There is currently no impact on any flight to or from Heathrow.”

Not true – Icelandair have, of course, cancelled their flight for this afternoon.

This is obvious and only a problem to the couple of hundred people travelling but when you are trying to reassure passengers it really is important to get your facts straight!
