European Airspace Opens But Passengers Are Still Stranded

22 04 2010

My father’s friend, Mr Steve McEwan still cannot get back to United Kingdom.

But the airspace is already opened.

Please click for European airspace developments as of 1942 GMT April 21, 2010.

The earliest he can fly home on Emirates airline will be on April 30, 2010.

His actual flight was on April 16, 2010.

He had been stranded in Kuala Lumpur for 7 days and has to wait for another 8 days to fly home!

The volcanic ash from under the Eyjafilljallajokull glacier caused European airspace to be closed for 5 days.

So, when the airspace is open on Wednesday millions of people tried to get home.

It needs a lot of plane trips to get everybody home.

So some stranded passenger are still stranded even when the European airspace is now opened.

This is a disaster especially to the stranded passengers.
