We have received an e-mail from Manos which indicates thet our flight to Kefalonia has been contracted to Smartlynx rather than Thomas Cook.
 
So far I have found out that they were part of Icelandair but split off in February. They have 6 smal  airbus and 2 boeing 767s.
 
Anyone got any comments?
Should we be worried?

Smartlynx are an operator from Latvia and are picking up a number of short hauls including the Kefalonia run. The aircraft they are using I think will be a Airbus 320 (reg is YL LCI) for this run, its 5yrs old so serviceable. 
Not a bad outfit but Thos Cook are cutting corners now by using budget carriers which is a worry. We are going out in June but not with TCL this year so hopefully all will be ok.

Four of us have been bumped off the Newcastle flight and put on the Manchester flight. Much inconvenience, and Thomas Cook only offering £100 total (£25 each). We now have overnight stay, more expensive train journey. Diamond Jubilee weekend so no other flights available from UK that weekend.  Has anyone else been offered more compensation? Thanks.

Hi Sarah,
Check out the post from Kastrofal at 1.08pm in the following topic. 


"National Express do a direct route through to Manchester Airport for £25 return when bought online. As it's a direct route (after Newcastle, Park Lane and Middlesborough), it only take 3.5 hours so that is something else I will look into."

Thought that it may be of help to you, perhaps negate an overnight stay.

Does this count as a material change for getting money back?
The husband would be reluctant to go along with a change like this if it happened to us.
Should they not at least coach you to Manchester?
 
Sorry it has happened to you - anyone else?

The first plane out to Kefalonia from Newcastle this afternoon is already showing a delay of one hour!
We go on the next one, next Sunday, fingers crossed!
