Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

Puyehue-Cordon Caulle Eruption Forces More Flight Cancellations

Posted by feww on June 21, 2011

More flights from Sydney to New Zealand have been cancelled

All Qantas and Jetstar flights from Sydney to New Zealand have cancelled again as new clouds of volcanic ash from continued eruption at Chile’s Puyehue-Cordon Caulle volcano complex hits southern Australia’s airspace.

Qantas has reportedly cancelled up to a 100 domestic flights and eight trans-Tasman flights today, as of posting.

The ash has also severely disrupted Virgin flights, reports said. The ash could severely disrupt flight from New Zealand tomorrow.
