XL Leisure going into administration

Have seen on another forum the following:

news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/7611639.stm

…timesonline.co.uk/to...cle4735790.ece

It would appear also that the TCD forum has gone down..

Last flight apparently 4am

It was a bit of a shock to the system at 5 in the morning to hear the news reader say the XL group were bankrupt!!

Hope everything works out for the people who have holidays booked with them.

Just heard on the 6.30 am news. Yes, very sad. I was just speaking to a friend yesterday who was going next Sunday. Her kids were counting down the sleeps, this was their first time. We went with them quite a fews time, although not the best they always got us there...and back.

Yeah so sad for everyone waiting to go and also for anyone stranded over there.

My friend is meant to be flying out there in a few weeks, she will be gutted as she was so looking forward to it.

Very sad especially with growing bills at home I do hope that everyone can get flights etc rescheduled no one should loose out on money as they were atol protected which is one silver lining I suppose. But how do you explain it to the kids? my heart goes out to all TCD / XL customers

I suppose this was inevitable but I'm still very shocked this morning.

I'm gutted for all TCD customers either waiting to fly out or stranded in Florida - BBC have just posted a helpline no: 02891856547. Good Luck everyone!

That's sad.

What with MyTravel joining ThomasCook, prices are FIXED AND GONNA BE HIGH. Thomson and Thomascook already fix prices high, cos there is no other competition out there.
