How extensively are BBC World reporting on the Thomas Cook collapse, especially with regard to practical information and advice for holiday makers abroad?
Lead story and also 2 or 3 more segments later in the bulletins. Various expert interviews. Company statements. Some prerecorded and replayed.
Haven’t seen telephone numbers given though, if that’s what you mean? (Help or Info Lines for stranded pax)
Are they being advised to sit tight, and carry on as normal with their holiday, (as the CAA are stepping in to pay the hotels and fly folk home on or near the scheduled return day)?
Sorry, I didn’t manage to see that degree of detail. But away from the newsroom, this is indeed the advice being given to those “stranded” overseas.
The British Government is mobilizing several large volume aircraft to combine flights and bring people home.
Oddly, a Malaysia Airlines Airbus A380 will operate a double Manchester to Palma tomorrow, uplifting around 600 people in each sortie.
Sorry for the thread creep.
Having just tuned in again a short while ago, World is still leading with the same story.
