I'm sure (if this is true) Condor want to take a piece of the UK market and not shut JMC down - which is what would happen if a UK company bought them out.

Interesting that both Condor and JMC have recently acquired the Boeing 757-300 (the drain pipe with wings, wot a bloody stupid looking aircraft).

Erm, isn't this old news? Isn't JMC, as part of Thomas Cook, owned by C&N Touristic, who own Condor, and are ultimately owned (at least in part) by Lufthansa?

And they bought Thomas Cook from Preussag (aka World of TUI) about a year ago when the latter acquired Thomson (and therefore Britannia).

JMC has always been part of Condor.
It is owned by a German company, of which 50% is owned by Condor. They get some of there spares from Condor. :o

World traveller has it spot on.

JMC is not owned by Condor but C&N, however there are certain simarlarities within the two companies/Fleets and therfore a lot of advantages to be gained by harmonising the way that both Condor & JMC do business.

JMC Currently use Condor for spares pooling for the 75-300's.
100% of JMC & 50% of Condor is under C&N ownership the other 50% of Condor is LH.

Thumbs up

Maybe soon you will get a new name on your airplanes, like Britania and Hapag-Lloyd do now.
We are flying now for "World of TUI", and both fleets will be painted new.

Donīt worry, JMC will not be sold out or something like that
