Flights Between LAX And London Cancelled
Nine flights to and from London were canceled Thursday morning as a result of volcanic ash above the U.K. that could damage jet engines, LAX officials report.
Four flights from London to LAX were nixed while five from LAX to London were a no-go as an Icelandic eruption sent a plume over the British Isles and Northern Europe, said Nancy Castles of LAX. Some British and European airports, including London's Heathrow, were temporarily closed. [Photo by Craig Murphy via Creative Commons].
