AC360°

The ash cloud above Europe has left air travelers stranded. Most of the airspace around the United Kingdom has been shut since Thursday morning after the eruption beneath southern Iceland's Eyjafjallajokull glacier worsened last week.

The UK is sending Royal Navy vessels to bring home stranded travelers, according to British Prime Minister Gordon Brown.

Tonight, Anderson talks to Richard Quest about what this means for the airline industry, future travel plans and the economy. Do you have questions? Let us know!

    Where does South America fit in all this? So far I've heard about Europe and parts of Asia being affected, but not a word about South America. What would happen if this lasts for more than 2 months? After all from what you reported this volcano's last eruption lasted one year. Who's to say that this time around will be any different?

    Upcoming trip to Ireland on May 15 and really worried about flight restrictions. Is is possible airlines will be bumping future flights to supplement delayed flights? Do you think travelers in the next month to Ireland or anywhere out side the main shut downs (London, etc) should be fearful of flight cancellations?
