Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Well the Christmas festivities are in full swing.  Last week myself and a few colleagues had our own little Christmas Party at Birmingham’s NEC.  As we couldn’t attend our works Christmas Conference we decided to do our own little party.  The party night was called the ‘Manhattan Experience’.  It was held in two huge rooms at the NEC.  There were acrobats and entertainment throughout the night and there was even fairground rides to go on if you were feeling brave enough.

Itinerary changes are a pain

In recent months we have been seeing that many cruise lines have been changing their Itineraries.

I can understand why this is done when hurricanes batter the likes of the Caribbean islands because the infrastructure can be damaged and for a few weeks after the hurricane the whole of Puerto Rico was without power so cruise lines cannot take clients where there is no water or electric because there would be an uproar if excursions were cancelled and all the facilities at the destination were closed.

What a week

Well it has been a topsy turvy week or so in the travel Industry and not really for the good.

Morarch group has ceased trading leaving over 100, 000 passengers abroad with the uncertainty of getting a flight home and over 800,000 future bookings being cancelled.  This has left over 1,800 employees for Monarch being told they do not have a job any more. My parents had flown to Spain two days ago with Monarch.  As they booked through a travel agent they are guaranteed a flight home, but on what carrier is anyone’s guess.

Well you have read the news.  Ryanair are planning to cancel 40-50 flights a day…..yes A DAY because they have messed up their pilots holiday rota’s!!! I thought Michael O’Leary’s hair brained idea of ‘low cost standing room only on his flights’ was nonsense but  I couldn’t believe my ears when I heard this news.  Firstly are all their pilots taking holiday in Sept-Oct ?  Is there a cheap deal we don’t know about and all the staff at Ryanair are off on their jollies?
