(Newser) – European air travel hasn't been disrupted this much since Eyjafjalljokull was spewing: Winter storms have snarled air and road traffic across Europe for the third day in a row, forcing major air hubs like Edinburgh and Geneva to shut down completely and causing delays at many others, the AP reports. A strike by Finnish flight attendants has added to the disruption and heavy snow is forecast to continue in many areas throughout today, reports Bloomberg. Eurostar services have also been severely disrupted.
