Volcano Ash Flights: EU Says Half Of Normal Flights May Run Monday

AMSTERDAM — European air traffic could return to about 50 percent of normal levels Monday if weather forecasts confirm that skies over half the continent are emptying of the volcanic ash that has thrown global travel into chaos, the European Union said. The prospects for a return to normal air travel remained far from clear, however. Several major airlines safely tested the skies with weekend flights that did not carry passengers.
