Has your flight been affected by the ash cloud?

Volcanic ash from an Icelandic eruption is expected to reach London's Heathrow airport - the world's busiest international air travel hub - around lunchtime on Tuesday.

A further 252 flights to and from Scotland and Northern Ireland were canceled on Tuesday, according to Eurocontrol, the continent's air traffic control organization. 

The ash cloud is forecast to cover all of British airspace by 1 a.m. Wednesday morning, Britain's weather agency, the Met Office, said Tuesday.

There are also concerns that the ash cloud could affect parts of Scandinavia later in the day.

We want to know if your flight has been affected by the ash cloud - has your trip been cancelled, postponed, delayed? Are you stranded?

Please let us know below and one of our CNN producers will get in touch with you.

    Is it likely that flight EI699 Duesseldorf/Germany to Dublin/Ireland will be cancelled?

    I am in Glasgow right now. The sky is as blue as it gets. When they talk about those "red zones" you'd expect the ash to be visible, but it isn't. I have a flight on Thursday from Edinburgh to Kaunas, Lithuania and I think there is a good chance that I will be stuck in Scotland. For as long as the eruption continues. Can anyone predict when the eruption stops? It might go on for MONTHS. If Ryanair says there was no damage to the plane during the test flight, if engine manufacturers say its safe to fly, I have no reason to not believe them.

    It is good to see that Air Traffic Control is keeping its nose clear this time and leave it to the people who do the flying to decide if a flight can be operated or not. As it should be!

    My daughter and friends are coming back from LHR to Spore on 26 May, flight BA15. Is the flight affected by the volcanic eruption?

    It is now almost the 31st of May 2011, and I am wondering when the moderation on my comment of the 25th of May 2011 will take place!
