Monday 23rd September 2019 - BREAKING NEWS - Thomas Cook Collapses

About 150,000 Britons have had their travel plans thrown into disarray after the collapse of Thomas Cook, leading to chaos in airports and hotels.

The 178-year-old travel giant has cancelled all its flights, leading the government to initiate its biggest repatriation effort since the Second World War.

The company’s 21,000 employees - around 9,000 of whom are UK-based - have lost their jobs, with 600,000 people worldwide having their travel plans disrupted.

A sad day in aviation news. Here are some of my favourite photos over the years of all different models and liveries. Farewell TCX, 1841-2019
