Is the travel nightmare due to a lack of research?

In today’s international press review, we focus on the alleged lack of research on ash clouds by plane manufacturers.

Iceland’s volcano is still making the headlines in the international press. The British newspaper The Guardian reveals that the travel chaos is partly due to a lack of research. “Plane manufacturers have never fully investigated the effects of flying through an ash cloud”, says the paper.
 
Meanwhile, the International Herald Tribune published an editorial with a completely different view on the issue. According to the journalist, the disruption has reminded people of the pleasures of travelling slowly, taking time to enjoy the landscapes. He says “flying is an empty, soulless way to travel”.
 
We also took at a look at a few cartoons in USA Today and The Daily Telegraph.
 
In other news, Gordon Brown says he wants to create an anti-Tory alliance. In an exclusive interview with the left-leaning newspaper The Independent, the British Prime Minister suggested he was open to a potential cooperation with the Lib-Dems.
 
Nick Clegg however, told the right-leaning newspaper The Daily Telegraph, that he thought Gordon Brown was “desperate” and could not be trusted.
 
Great Britain is currently preparing for a general election, scheduled in early May. According to the latest polls, the Labour party stands third behind its two rivals, the Conservatives and the Lib-Dems.
