    Just seen on the BBC website that all transatlantic flights have been grounded due to a problem with Air Traffic control.

    I hope they get the problem sorted soon for any DISr's flying out or coming home today or tomorrow.

    Shanwick ATC down.

    delays of at least six hours, possibly 12 hours.

    ATC not expected to be back to normal until 15:00Z

    Well if they are already in Orlando, head back to the park for extra fun. :cool1: If they are waiting to go, this is terrible news. Wonder what caused the problem.
