The article focuses on the appeal of small tour operators on the suggestion of the government guidance that they must pay the ash bill. It says that the operators are advised to pay for the meals, taxi, and hotel costs incurred during the volcanic ash cloud as stated in the 1992 Package Travel Regulations issued by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) in Great Britain. Legal firm Hextalls LLP's partner Alex Padfield says that the issued guidance is dangerous and not helpful.
