The mass of air transport
passengers stuck overseas by the ash from Icelands Eyjafjallajokull volcano were likely to return home by last night said the Association of British Travel Agents.
Most flights were back to usual said by Abta chief executive Mark Tanzer. The plan was to have more than 100,000 British passengers send home by last night. But there were still 10,000 passengers stucked in Egypt, 9,000 in Florida, 5,000 in South Africa, 4,000 in California, 2,500 in Thailand, and 2,000 in Malaysia.
Britons stuck in Bangkok were allegedly too worried to leave Suvarnabhumi Airport for horror of being caught up in anti government protests. In an effort to clear the backlog, Virgin Atlantic and British Airways requested for volunteers to provide their seats to stucked travellers.
Transporting 200,000 passengers to their home has required a massive airlift, and I thank our passengers for their patience and understanding during this unprecedented natural disaster said in a statement by Budget airline easyJet Chief executive Andy Harrison.
The government for grounding planes for six days when all the experts were saying there was no danger at all to flying said in a report by Virgin Atlantic boss Sir Richard Branson. He claimed the government organise payment for air transport industry which pay for stucked passengers accommodation and food. The flight restrictions cost his airline about £50million over six days. The Transport Secretary Lord Adonis said the European Commission is considering proposals on compensation.
The decision made by safety regulators to restrict airspace was made in line with long standing international guidelines and information from aircraft manufacturers that any volcanic ash could pose a danger to aircraft said in a report by The Department for Transport
spokeswoman. The entire Europe has been in same position according to the same aviation safety rules.

and rail transport
services in 12 European countries, including Slovakia, Sweden and Portugal. It had been in discussion with French rail transport operator SNCF, one of Deutsche chief rivals but declared in early March that talks had finished.

Volkswagen the German car manufacturer
is announced the 2011 Volkswagen Phaeton is revealed at the Beijing auto show. The 2011 Volkswagen Phaeton will be sold with four different engine options, and will be offered as an extended wheelbase.
The 2011 Volkswagen
Phaeton is powered with V6 petrol engine system
with a 276-HP or 206 kW / 280 PS but a torquier turbodiesel V6 with 236 hp or 176 kW / 240 PS is also offered. VW shows that the V6 TDI is capable of getting the car to 100 km/h in about 8.6 seconds.
The other two engines, a 330HP or 246 kW / 335 PS with petrol V8 and a 444HP or 331 kW / 450 PS with petrol W12, appear to be same as two of the units presently on offer with the car. This is inadequate as those engines have been around for four years now, and the car would likely gain greatly from having a more fuel system
efficient performance engine with direct injection and stop/start.
VW omitted the blacked out radiator grille cover on this car, in favor of chrome. The outer has been modified from front to back, while the interior has been given 18 way seats and 4 sector climate manage. The base level Phaeton will be comfortable 5.06 meters long as the absolute model will extend out a further 12 cms.

Airlines have lost around $1.7 billion after a week without revenue because of the chaos caused by Icelandic volcanic ash said in a report by the head of the International Air Transport Association or IATA Mr. Giovanni Bisignani. On Saturday and Sunday air transport
lost $400 million per day calling an earlier estimate of 200 million US dollars per day.
The sector has also been left to pick up further costs like offering accommodation to the stranded customers, food and another mode of transport to get them home. We have seen a week with no income but that has not blocked the costs.
In Europe governments must take their responsibility and aids the air transport terming the firm losses of an act of God completely out of control of the airlines. However the situation was different from the result of the attacks on the US on September 11, 2001, when airlines were secured out by governments.
European air transport
was gradually returning to normal on Wednesday after volcanic ash gliding from an eruption in Iceland provoked a shutdown last week that left millions of travellers stranded and hit the economy. The chief executive of Lufthansa, European major airlines by passenger numbers, said that the firm had no calculation on how much the stoppage had cost firm but that it was not marginal.
We dont need a bailout, we dont need an umbrella but as an industry we will have to make up our mind on whether we want state help or not said in a statement by Wolfgang Mayrhuber. Asked about how fast the sector would improve Mayrhuber said volcano will not change the wish and need to travel.

Mercedes-Benz the German car manufacturer
is currently working on Mercedes-Benz Shooting Break concept a new four-door coupe concept which is going to make its first debut at 2010 Beijing International Motor Show.
Shooting Break concept is powered with a new direct-injection 3.5-L V6 engine system
that produces 306HP or 225 kW and up to 370 Nm or 273 ft-lb of torque. The concept car is a sample of the future 2011 Mercedes-Benz CLS. With a lengthy hood, bulbous rear wheel arches, intensely cut styling across the cars side panels, and a swooping roofline, the concept is much enhanced proportioned than the often-criticized 5er GT.
"The Shooting Break concept car is based on the great tradition of a stylish, cultivated sportiness which has always characterised the great Mercedes Coupes, and it takes this unique legacy an exciting step further. At the same time it points the way towards the future design idiom of Mercedes-Benz." said in a report by Prof. Gorden Wagener the Mercedes-Benz top designer.
The features on the concept car include headlights made from 71 LEDs, lamps flank either side of the SLS AMG-styled radiator grille and are set above large air intakes. The car rides on one-off five-spoke 20-inch silver wheels, which fit in well with the satin finish allanite grey mango paint job.
The interior of the car has contrasting cream and brown leather, though a third leather shade needlessly creates a tri-color scheme. The use of the cream tone as the dominant color that carries into the headliner works to make the concept feel more spacious and comfortable. The rear seats are stylish storage units intended to fit items like a laptop or tool kit, with a drawback that they may be hard to achieve. A flat wooden floor in back will make sliding luggage or golf clubs in and out of the car a bit easier.
