One problem on FaceBook is everybody only putting their own point. It needs clarity. If only people would post specific information and nothing else, we could see the true picture.
1 My holiday has been cancelled.
2 I am with TUI/Jet2/Whoever.
3 I am on a package/flight only.
4 Flying from Manchester/wherever.
5 For 1/2 weeks/days.
6.Day and Dates start and finish.
7 Accommodation name.
This is because there is a lot of confusion. Some people have been cancelled and some haven't. My theory is that TUI have cancelled SOME accommodation contracts. They have also cancelled SOME flights. What the criteria are for cancellations by TUI I don't know (e.g. which gives them most profit, flight or accommodation?). In my opinion, no hotels etc have said they are not opening voluntarily - I believe it's because of being compelled by various factors. For instance, didn't the Greek government say any hotels etc which open must only open maximum of 50% of their accommodation? I've heard that owners will have to arrange for a private doctor to be "on tap". Opening for half or less of the season will require the same effort as opening for the full season. That would make some places simply not cost effective.
FaceBook needs some brave soul to put that up and for participants to stick to not muddying the issue by posting that they're sure the price of Mythos will still be the same, but cat food is costing a bomb and does anybody know if Parga has umbrellas and sunbeds and when's Happy Hour in Thessalonika and there's been a spike in the virus in Morocco - so it ain't gonna happen, not on FaceBook! We could do it here and say that ANY digressions will be ruthlessly pruned/moderated out, but from past experience of similar situations, I doubt if we would get enough participation to give a decent result (several people on FB are not posting here).
