Branson Says Flight Ban an Overraction

HaymarketRiot (931189) writes "Richard Branson has claimed that the flight ban, due to the eruption of the volcano Eyjafjallajokull, was an overraction on the part of the authorities. Britain's government has even called for the airlines to be compensated. This does look like a perfect excuse for already greedy airlines to try and get more money...any experts care to comment on the effect of volcanic ash on planes?"

Seems to be the typical scenario:

You grab someone's arm to stop them from accidentally stepping in front of a bus. They sue you because you hurt their arm.
