Check Liverpool airport website. A couple of hours ago they were showing delays of up to 2 hours on a few flights but I've not looked since.

TATL flights from Europe have been avoiding UK airspace, creating unique flight paths. I just looked at an LH flight FRA-IAH and it made landfall over florida as opposed to the standard... Newfoundland.
