In the article, “Ash delays and reroutes trans-Atlantic flights” by SLOBODAN LEKIC, talks about the Iceland volcanoes recent activity and how it will affect the trans-Atlantic flights. The volcano continued to distribute more ash into the air Saturday May 8, 2010 causing a 120 mile long cloud of ash once again delaying or extending the flights to and from Europe, the airplane companies either decided to cancel flights or fly around the cloud to the south or north. Just as the first time the volcano erupted in April the ash is heading east to cover Europe in more ash causing some airports to be warranted closed. The civil aviation in Europe has decided to make flight into the ash to get as much information possible increasing what we do in response. Clearly, this one volcano in Iceland is causing a lot of problems in the Atlantic for many people.
