Derek Jones @Degsy_DJ (Der Touristik UK) I’m sorry, but I’m on a @jet2tweets flight and they’re NOT playing @JessGlynne! #unacceptable glitch in the space time continuum!


Gifts from customers?: Turkey, salmon, trout!


Agent Diary: Odd gifts from clients can be educational What’s the most unusual gift you’ve received from a client – can you beat tights and pineapple chunks?


Jo Almond: A turkey (a dead one!). I’d managed to get the customers a last-minute flight over Christmas and they were so grateful they brought me in a huge turkey to have for my Xmas lunch to say thank you!? Christine Miller: Smoked trout from Mauritius and a whole salmon from Alaska!

Cook: Rescue deal welcome but shareholders overlooked


GET Ê


Story: Union seeks job assurances after Thomas Cook rescue terms are agreed I’m very pleased that the institutions and Fosun have agreed a deal to secure the future of the company, the staff and provide ongoing reassurance to customers. I suspect though that a significant reorganisation of the company will now be needed, to guarantee future prosperity and growth. I can’t help feeling that ordinary shareholders, some of whom are existing or former employees of the company, have been completely overlooked in this process. John McEwan

B737 Max: Boeing and the FAA both have PR jobs to do


Comment: When will Boeing’s 737 Max fly and will passengers want to board? There is a big PR job to be done to win back public confidence if the Max takes to the skies again. Looking from afar, the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) has a PR job to do as well, to show that it does not have a cosy relationship with Boeing. Lessons will be learnt, I am sure. What we do not need is a blame game. People have lost their lives, so let’s not play politics with this. Patrick Doyle
