Where did you get that info from? It will take months for any transaction to complete. You should stay away from the keyboard and concentrate on your spellings and times table.

Wonder what comedy Purple/Sunny Heart hybrid livery we'll see on DS
TF-GMA Has been painted in full livery as D-AIAI so maybe we wont see the purple hybrid.

There is also an element of consumer confidence, if that collapses then that is enough in itself to bring Thomas Cook down. The sort of 'shout loud enough so it must be true' mentality.

Presumably one of one Thomas Cook group hotel/resort brands? We already have Cook's Club and Condor have Sentido. So perhaps Casa Cook or Sun Prime perhaps? Maybe even a Lollo and Bernie (kids club mascots) jet

Casa Cook would be my bet.

I dunno, that ended up pretty good publicity as it went viral

From the press release:
Statement re media speculation

Thomas Cook Group notes the media speculation regarding a potential sale of its Northern Europe business. Thomas Cook Group confirms that it has received a highly preliminary and unsolicited indicative offer from Triton Partners for its Northern Europe business, comprising its tour operator and airline in Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark.

The group is currently evaluating this offer alongside the ongoing strategic review of its Group Airline, announced in February 2019. The group has received multiple bids, including for the whole, and parts, of the airline business and the Board of Thomas Cook Group will consider these approaches with the aim of maximising value for all shareholders.

There can be no certainty that a transaction will be concluded with Triton Partners. Thomas Cook Group will make a further announcement as appropriate.

I suspect that scenario is actually very low risk.

Heard the sale of the airline is being complicated by the engineering division which may or may not be wanted by a new owner
