Stranded passengers struggling to get home

Despite the fact that UK airspace was reopened late last week there are still hundreds of thousands of people stranded overseas, struggling to fight for empty seats available today. British Airways is one company which is attracting more than its fair share of criticism with many stranded passengers complaining that they have received no preferential treatment despite the fact that many have been stranded for days and their funds are running low.

While the volcanic ash situation may well have left the headlines of the worldwide media there's no doubt that more and more people are struggling to get home and fend for themselves overseas. The UK government has done what it can in the short term to try and alleviate the problem but the very fact that airlines are now back up and running and UK airspace is open again should, you would've thought, be an end to the problem. While concerns regarding a potential further lockdown of UK airspace because of more volcanic ash clouds have so far proved unfounded, there is no doubt that the volcanoes in question are still very active.

If you look back over the last 2 to 3 years we have seen a combination of enormous financial difficulties around the world and natural disasters all of which have come together to create a nightmare scenario for the UK and the worldwide economy.
