Default Avoiding Volcanic Ash

Flying back from Amsterdam to DFW on friday with KLM, I saw that we
headed north for Denmark, then turning west, passed to the north of
Iceland. Then crossing the southern half of Greenland and into Canada,
we proceeded across the Hudson Bay, and passed West of ALL the Great
Lakes, and then on south.

Now that's what I call avoiding a problem - we had enhanced separation
too apparently!

Wow, microsoft already added volcano smoke to
the graphics package?

Ha, KIDDING! Glad you made it back ok. That's
quite some route you took.

Did you ever see any ash?

This is becoming a big joke over here.

Nobody (outside Iceland) has actually seen any of the stuff.


My wife showed me a moving depiction on an internet Atlantic map
yesterday, so I imagine somebody can track the stuff.
