    (NECN/CNN) - Across Europe, airports are reopening a week after flights were grounded because of the volcano eruption in Iceland.


    75% of scheduled flights in Europe are expected to be in the air today.

    The crisis has stranded tens of thousands of passengers around the world.

    The shutdown cost airlines more than $1.7 billion in revenue through yesterday.

    The Icelandic volcano behind all the travel trouble is still erupting, but the eruptions are weaker and they involve less ash, but more lava.
