The Chosun Ilbo has a small photo gallery of stranded foreigners at Incheon International Airport on the 19th.
The JoongAng Daily reports that a lot of flights between Europe and Incheon have been cancelled recently.
The volcanic ash clouds in Europe have forced the cancellations of most flights to and from Europe at Incheon International Airport for four days straight. According to the Incheon International Airport Corporation, 41 flights out of 54 scheduled to leave for or arrive from Europe were canceled yesterday.
The Korea Herald says 127 flights in and out of Incheon were cancelled from Friday to "yesterday," and I assume "yesterday" is Monday since the news put on the website on the 19th hits newsstands on the 20th. The JoongAng Daily continues
On Saturday, 33 flights to and from Europe were canceled following 16 cancellations Friday. Over four days, Korean Air canceled 23 flights while Asiana Airlines canceled 8.
Nearly 200 foreigners with tickets to Europe waited at Incheon International Airport terminals.
Indeed, one of the stories lately is frustration at Incheon among unhappy passengers stranded for days. From the Associated Press a few hours ago:
At Incheon International Airport in South Korea, a group of about 30 frustrated passengers blocked a Korean Air ticketing counter and demanded a meeting with company officials to arrange travel to anywhere in Europe after they heard an Air France jet flew from the airport to the French city of Bordeaux.
They held up a makeshift sign saying, "We want to come back home," each word written on a separate piece of paper and held by an individual traveler.
"We need a flight, we need a time," Thierry Loison, who has been stuck since Friday at Incheon on the way back to France after a vacation in Bali, told Korean Air officials. "We were like animals this morning."
Passengers resting on blankets spread on the floor of a business center complained about the lack of hotel accommodations. They said they were only receiving a voucher for one meal a day at McDonald's and that they were running out of money.
Well, if it's any consolation, Incheon consistently ranks among the best airports in the world.
