This sounds very 'IFFY' to me, in these situations, the purchasing company would only buy and reopen the 'loocrative' shops .....

learn how to spell 1stroke.

Stop bullying TTS, Whups. I suggest you learn how to use capital letters starting a sentence and names also exclamation marks.

I have changed me mind about this, after seeing an interview with the new owners of Thomas Cook

Posted by: basil brush (12464) Report abuse
What's it matter TTS, its getting ex Thomas Cook employee's back into work.

Thomas Cook went under with a debt of £1.7 billion.
Hays Travel has a net value of £37 million and is already has debts of £117 million. They'll be next!

thomas cook was very popular with the public, so its demise must be done to poor management ,rather than a lack of clients.
being made redundant isnt fun,i have tried it several times,so good luck to some of the lucky thomas cook employees.

Most people book their holidays on line these days. Hence the demise of Thomas Cook !

I wondered if the planes you see with ‘Thomas Cook’ livery on them are actually owned by Thomas Cook, if so, it may be that the debt figure of £1.7 billion that Tonker quoted could be offset with their sale.

Thomas Cook had very little asset value. Their aircraft were leased. Most, if not all, airlines lease their engines at least!

Tonker, cheers for clarifying that

I think Condor own the planes hence the bail out by the German government.

Hayes Travel have only taken over the Thomas Cook travel agent shops, not the rest of the business. i.e. Thomas Cook Airlines

Hayes Travel want the Thomas Cook customer base, that is customers who have always used Thomas Cook, believing them to be a reputable company, and not a cowboy operation which will leave them stranded abroad, and seeing that the repatriation of Thomas Cook customers went almost without a hitch, I would imagine that the customer base is still intact, and I would imagine that the intention will be to capture that customer base, and the online Thomas Cook customer base, because I would put it without reference, that more holidays were booked with Thomas Cook online, than were in the shops, so like Argos, I would imagine that the high street holiday shops will be rundown gradually, as the business moves online, or there might be a place for high street holiday shops, maybe they will buck the trend, because you can walk in a pick up a few brochures, maybe that is what folk like dooing
