Hi Schumi! I’ve just read on the news here that Thomas Cook has ceased trading immediately! I hope this won’t affect you?!
:welcome: Along Zosha.......

Good to see you here......

Yes, they ceased trading at midnight last night.......it’s awful for all the folks that have lost their livelihood....22,000 jobs gone overnight.

The Civil Aviation Authority are repatriating folks until Oct 6th, so we just have to wait for details of the new flight arrangements. We could be flying home with anyone, just don’t know yet. But it’s good news for us......

Just need to wait now......not much else we can do. But, thank you for the concern.......it’s been a strange travel trip for sure.......lol........:wave2:

Isn’t it funny. I’m sitting here down under and I’ve been quietly reading along on your postings. I heard that on the news tonight and you were the first person I thought of! I’m glad it won’t affect your holiday plans too much but yes, dreadfully sad for the workers.

    I, like a lot of other people here, heard about the Thomas Cook news and you were the first person that I thought of as well! Glad to hear that everything should be ok with your flight back home! I hope you and Tom are having a wonderful time!!

    Thank you.......yes, it was somewhat expected over the last weeks or so, but such a shame for those employed directly and indirectly.

    Even if we had to have paid for new flights home, it would have been fine.....one of those things.

    Heard this on the way to work and that was my thought as well!
    Thanks for the thoughts Margaret.....appreciate them.......we have people in the lounge who got the last TC flight out and they were so happy, but not sure how they’ll get home now. Fingers crossed for them.

    I was just coming on here to ask if your flight arrangements were ok. Seems I'm in a great group of people thinking of you.
    :welcome: back Bethany......

    Yes, you should make the CAA aware that you are in no rush and don't mind letting other people get flights ahead of you, lol! You can wait it out at Universal! We would all enjoy a longer trip report when you eventually get home! Jokes aside, I realize it is no laughing matter. Always feel a bit sick hearing of any business going under, never mind one that's existed so long and employed such a lot of people, and of course its effect on the thousands of people using its services.

    :welcome: Along nycdisneygal......

    Glad to have you along.........thank you for the thoughts, always appreciated........

    Yes, it’s dreadful for those who lost their jobs and livelihood.......I think we’re among the lucky ones...we’ll get home regardless. Nice to see you here........:wave2:

    :welcome: back Dynamoliz.........good to see you!!

    Yes, I wish!! They contact us and tell us when flight has been arranged.....we have said we’d happily wait longer.....and the hotel is happy for us to do so, they’ve been amazing.......whatever we need, they’d help.

    Yes, it’s a tragedy......it’s the UK’s oldest travel firm......and the knock on effect is massive. Complaining about an inconvenience seems ridiculous.......we’re in the right place for sure........

    Thank you......nice to see you post again........:wave2:

    I instantly thought about you and worried! I know you travel with Thomas Cook! I wasn’t sure if you did this trip or not! It looks like it from your replies. At least you will have a little more time in Orlando!!
    There are way worse places to have to stay at. :hyper: Glad you are somewhere you all love!

    So sad, every day some company goes under and thousands lose jobs....
    You're a trooper and so kind to be worried about the employees and dealing with your situation with grace.

    Thank you Caroline......funny thing is this trip was supposed to be with Virgin Atlantic.......but they had no premium available, so TC it was....

    Looks like we’ll be travelling day we were supposed to......but of course if they need us to stay longer.....we’ll be happy.......yes, it could be worse....we could be waiting to come out!!!

    Glad to see you :wave2:

    It is dreadful. So many jobs lost. A vacation can be replaced, but I can only imagine how the staff feel right now. Hoping most have found or will find employment with other firms.
