So it looks like British Airspace will start opening up again tomorrow.
BBC News - Northern UK airspace to reopen after volcanic ash chaos

The problem we have now results from the hoo ha from the insurers, manufacturers et al. jerking their knees and seeing a quick buck come service time. By them stipulating that flight withing the 'red area' invalidates any insurances or warranties, we are still going to be stuck on the ground until the 'red area' moves. I suggest written permissions from the same are needed before ops resume.

Anyone else notice the recent rapid shifting of the red area, despite what the rest of the Met Offices site tells us? (synoptics and high alt winds) I wonder how long it is before the Met Office models move the red line away from the UK.
