Doesn't read like a 1980 Mt St Helens type modern airline learning event and likely only affecting fairly local flights.

Sinabung, Agung and Dukono are rumbling all the time. At the moment only Dukono has a sigmet, see below. The FL in that sigmet of 070 is the usual level, but with some recent spikes to 160/180. A recent hickup of Agung caused cancellations of a few hundred flights for a few days. You can find posts on that in the rumors list.
