Travelling to India - First Try

We had booked our travel to Gujarat for the 15.April. In the morning we heard on radio and saw on TV the reports about the volcano in Iceland which brought ash into the atmosphere - and we saw that flights were cancelled. Also our flight was cancelled, but when calling the airline, they told us that they would notify us later about what was going to happen. We took a chance and travelled to the airport anyway.

The airport was relatively empty. It appeared that many people had already stayed at home. Emirates distributed a flyer in which the situation was explained. We called, and were able to rebook for Tuesday, 20.April.
