Stupid Eyjafjallajokul!

Apparently that unpronounceable volcano over on Iceland has spewed some more ash up into the European sky, causing more trouble for airlines.

Flights over the U.K. and Ireland are having to be re-routed over the Iberian peninsula, and apparently that's creating a bit of a log-jam in the airspace there (can that really happen? Why not just fly a little higher or lower or something?). Anyways, we're getting rather nervous about what this will mean for ticket prices for our little July visit to the USA. Thus far, we haven't seen anything cheaper than $2,000 or so for the two of us, which is really pushing the limits of what we can manage. So if any of you kind people see a sale or a good price on some airline, please let us know!
