Think laterally - make a buck or two

European airlines are complaining that they can't make money withtheir planes grounded and should therefore be compensated for losing money while their staff are idle.

This should be resisted, but probably won't be. While Europe is covered in ash, those pilots could be usefully employed as emergency window cleaners. With 25 million houses in the UK alone at £20 a time, that is £500 million of revenue up for grabs.
