Airspace over Europe is mostly open today, meaning LAX's regular schedule of 17 departing flights and 16 arriving flights (one has been canceled) are clear to go, LAX officials announced this morning. They do expect, however, that many flights will be "significantly delayed." Also, an estimated 3,000 passengers remain stuck in Los Angeles and are awaiting available standby seats on flights. Around 10,000 people have been affected at LAX since last Thursday when Eyjafjallajökull in Iceland erupted, spewing volcanic ash across the continent.
