Is the threat of the volcanic ash returning every now and again going to make people think of flying away? There wont be any airlines left if they have to keep paying out hugh sums of money everytime it happens.
We are scheduled to depart from Newcastle airport early tomorrow morning.
ITV North East had a reporter at the airport today. So far only flights to Ireland cancelled, Business as usual for elsewhere, even those flying over Ireland. They fly high enough to be clear of the ash cloud. So said the reporter.
and volcanic ash won't enter my mind. Long ago, when I realised I would be flying a lot I decided that life would be a lot less stressful in one respect if I made the assumption that the people on the flight deck know what they are doing, and that they want to get there in one piece just as much as I do.
When I board an aircraft I do so in the certain knowledge that flying in a big passenger jet is the safest way to travel. I surrender myself to the process.
I think there is enough commonsense on that, its the getting stuck and not having the money to live for a couple of weeks in Dubai or wherever, and not relying on the air carriers or the stoney broke British Government to bail you out? Please read what I write, nothing to do with safety.
