Volcanic ash from Iceland

[Post published by Liviu on Liviu's [in Netherlands] Blog]

I finally decided to inform myself on the volcano eruption in Iceland, which blocked most flights in the EU. I admit I had no idea the situation was so terrible!
There has been and is so much volcano ash above the Netherlands, according to the map provided by the BBC article on the volcanic ash from Iceland. (I mean, it's Benelux, England, Northern Germany and a tiny bit of Northern France that are the worst hit.)

Are we gonna die?
Why not?

... 'cause we gotta keep working? Ok, fine, back to work, people! Show's over, folks!

As you suspect, I did not notice the ash in the sky. Basically, if I have not been informed by the world media on the eruption, I wouldn't have known about it.
Therefore, I lied when I said the situation was terrible.

And now, a stupid joke/question I invented:
Regarding England and France, since all flights have been and shall be stopped for several days, will this get British Airways and Air France decrease their strike days quota this year? (I mean, given this situation, they have already earned several free days, right?)
