Oh god I gave Delta my email address so's they could send me flight updates and they sent me a heartbreakingly standard, cheerful "okay then! let's get ready for your flight tomorrow!" email. And they haven't cancelled my flight yet.

"Heartbreakingly" because I just can't believe it it's going to happen, given the news. Current state of affairs seems to be airlines making a few test flights, and saying they they might resume flights in a week. Are the journalists overreacting? Am I misinterpreting? Am I reading into UK news too much, where the ash cloud is denser? I dare say I suspect I'll be flying over UK airspace on the way back to the US, given the way great circles work out and such.
