Under the volcano (ash cloud)

As many people, some relatives of mine were stranded in the UK waiting a flight to take them back home last week.This volcanic eruption and its ash cloud had a terrible impact on the European air industry but what about the mobile industry?

I have been calling the reservation number for my relatives numerous times and for long period of time. I now know their waiting music by heart. 😉

I believe I’m not alone in this case and people stranded abroad should have done the same: trying to book another flight or to contact friends and family home.

So the volcano impact on Mobile Operators should have been good or even very good: by now many travellers should have huge bills of roaming air time. And I’m not sure they will get refunded by their airline or their favourite operator.
