Was about to post just that. Wonder how long will the eruption last. There's potential for long-term disruptions.

Yes, and someone on A.net said AMS will follow, possibily Brussels and I presume CDG. Of course all the other airports in these regions will be affected, but the bulk of traffic is in and out of these hubs.

The eruption could last a while, but if winds shift you might get lucky.

I was due to fly to Florence tomorrow morning at 7

Looks like the airlines let you change your flight to another day for free, but obviously it's to late to cancel the hotel reservation...so that money would be lost.

Dutch airspace is expected to be closed at 19:00 CET, but I can't tell you how long this will last, sorry. Maybe it will be open in time for your flight to depart.

Yikes ... can't imagine the effect of London having to shut down its airports.

This will cause one giant mess. In the evening almost all major northern European airports will be shut down (LHR,AMS,BRU,DUB,MAN,LGW,OSL,ARN,CPH,STN) and CDG, FRA, DUS and ORY might possibly follow soon.
