What’s the actual latest on the Thomas Cook day trip? Has anyone actually heard anything to suggest it will get cancelled? Other than assuming it will down to TC financial difficulty.

I wonder what the chances are of Sport Options doing a daytrip now, the overnight doesn't really suit me with work.

Glasgow via Heathrow & Madrid to Porto & back same way with BA if they are not on strike. Tuesday to Friday.

Travel Club insist Thomas Cook Sports are a different company.
That would be a result

Clearly the fleet of aircraft they have access to would be affected ?

Edit. 2 minute google says they are gubbed come morning. T&C on the website relate to ‘Thomas Cook Retail Limited’

Hopefully SportOptions see an opportunity to get an official deal

Would be a result but it’s untrue. Try going into Thomas Cook Sport website. Sorry, just saw your edit.

Just booked the Sports Options one. Bit of a gutter as was trying to use the official route for a ticket on 0 points. Now not guarantee a ticket but would still need to travel anyway. Still be a good laugh though sure plenty of us will be there in the same boat.

My route is porto - Faro - prestwick.
Only taking 5 hours all in, I got it for 140 but its nearly 200 quid now.
If you dont mind a lot of travelling and a long journey you can go Porto - Madrid - birmingham - Glasgow for about 100 quid.
Takes all day though.
Theres also lots of flights via London dining in less than 150 quid.
