According to the Financial Times, this slump relates to the first two weeks in January 2012 - a period when tour operators traditionally expect up to 15% of their total bookings to be made.

The difficulties facing Thomas Cook which were greatly publicised in November 2011 therefore do not seem to be at an end. This compares to the 11% drop in bookings faced by rival TUI and the industry average of a 15% frop in bookings. Chief executive Sam Weihagen has insisted that the fall in bookings is in large part due to a reduction in the numbers of holidays offered.
