The only one flight diverted was that of KLM. No other airline or flight cancel the flight, in or out of MEX. There was no euruption. simply the Popocatépetl volcano made several smoke and steam fumaroles.

What about the "Carbon Footprint" of such wasteful practices? That as been a big topic re Aviation.

What about the carbon footprint of those darn volcanoes that erupt? Someone needs to tell them to stop doing that! They're ruining the planet!

Greta might cry, but they never blame anything other than people for global warming...... Can't tax volcanoes.
