Special Report: ‘We can’t slow down’ on bogus claims Why have we not seen any news on what procedures are being implemented in resorts to record exactly what is going on to reduce real sickness matters? And what news of tour operators implementing support for those genuinely affected?

Story: C&M Travel Recruitment boss urges firms to tackle gender pay gap I specialise in travel industry recruitment and on no occasion have I had a candidate advise that they are leaving because there is a gender pay gap. Nor have I experienced any disparity in salaries offered based on gender. There may be the odd isolated incident, as mentioned in the article; however, I have not come across this at all.

Comment: Will sunbed trial take off? Charging for sunbeds means people will go to the beach instead. Hotels will then see a decline in money spent on food, drink and activities. SAMANTHA


TWEETS THIS WEEK


Story: UK pilots strike ‘historic’ union deal with Ryanair Good news. It is better to work together for all – airlines, pilots, clients. We have enough problems in travel without fighting among ourselves.


PATRICK DOYLE


Derek Jones @Degsycom Airlines charging for families to sit together is bad enough. Pre-allocating them seats apart (if true) is disgraceful. #BadProfit


Family Holiday Assoc @famholidayassoc “Our favourite parts of the holiday were the pebbles, fish and chips on the beach, having a picnic and getting wet feet!” #FeedbackFriday


Westoe Travel @westoetravel We are very proud that Destination Canada has appointed our Joan Brett as an Elite Canada Specialist for her Canada knowledge and sales.


QUOTE OF THE


WEEK


“Increased costs will find a way into the supply chain. We’re now into a very challenging period. The industry


contracts potentially 18 months out.”

I don’t think anybody could assume that charging for allocated seats was introduced for any reason other than to bolster profits. Airlines do many things, justifying them this way or that – but it is only ever about getting more money. I appreciate that companies are created for profit, but some shady practices should be banned. MERKURIUSZ POLONIJNY

LETTER OF THE


WEEK


EDITORIAL@ TRAVEL WEEKLY. CO.UK


Seat allocation scam discredits us all


Story: Confusion over airline allocated seating policies sparks CAA review This is a shocking and shameful scam which brings discredit on the whole industry. The CAA should not act as apologists for this devious practice. As for children being seated away from their parents, this must be illegal, as the airline owes the child a duty of care. Computers can allocate seats together in nanoseconds. OBSERVER
