The full story will no doubt emerge in the days ahead.

EY flight schedules will not return to normal for another day or so.

Media reports talk about passengers having to spend many hours on grounded planes at AUH whilst waiting to depart.

CBS San Francisco reports that passengers on one flight spent 12 hours on the ground after fog closed AUH. They then faced a further 16 hour non-stop flight back to San Francisco.
