I am just going to get this back on topic…
From what I have gathered, it seems like Thomas Cook has applied for a “rescue package” which contains $200 million to get the airline back on track; they’re expected to get this rescue package some time next week.
Thomas Cook has basically said to their holidaymakers that they have 24 hours to get back home, just in case the airline goes bankrupt, or they’re going to have to find alternative ways home.
Personally, I think it’s a good call. If holidaymakers want to spend the rest of their holiday worrying about how they’re going to get home, then that’s their choice. If holidaymakers don’t want to worry, then they can do what Thomas Cook has suggested, and get back home within the next 24 hours. That’s just my 2 cents.
