Interesting Don posts this on the day of the event. It just so happened that Oceanic was online for the FRA -> JFK event. I get if VA's don't want ATC, but if they do, places need to be notified much sooner than this.

We were notified a few months ago, along with the Shannon FIR. I'm not sure if the VA coordinated with anyone in between.

The only reason I posted it was the last time a VA asked ZSE to come out in the middle of the night, promising over 100 aircraft, I think they got like 5 or 6.  I knew it was a real long shot that anyone would see it that time of night and just an hour or so before the beginning of the event, but I thought I'd drum up any traffic I could for the good folks from ZSE that dutifully came out in large numbers in the middle of the night, just in case it was another VA-caused night shift fail.  I was happy to see, however, that the VA did indeed come out in spades!

And yes, this was indeed several hours before the EDDF/KJFK event. :)

The RYRs were going over Canada, Greenland and Iceland, just passing through a corner of Shanwick of about 300 nm.
Reykjavik was notified a month before.
