What a couple of eerie events!
Firstly during a conversation with our driver in Bali on Wednesday, I was talking about the Bali and Java Volcano's and said "We never have any problems in Europe with Volcano's and eruptions"........ Then our the second leg of our Singapore flight 5 hours old a day later and just about to enter Pakistan airspace, I was watching "2012" and the Super Volcano in Yellowstone was about to blow, when the tannoy annoucement says "Bad news......Heathrow Airport is shut due to Volcanic erruption".
I was expecting a camerman to appear and getting ready for "You'v been framed".
So the A380 turned back to Singapore, where we are currently staying in a hotel out of the airport. Most passengers are dossing in the airport, but a little bit of persasion saw us lifted out and put up.
Seems the airlines are washing their hands of responsibility due to "act of god".... but as we are here in Transit and my huge influence, we are in a hotel (without our luggage) and will be buying some more clothes today at the airlines expense.
So Two holidays for the price of one.
