Excuse me, dahrlings, but...

Call Me Nosy

The rumour mill is grinding up kernels of innuendo into a fine powdery flour. Time for some fluff cake, Pumpkins.

Water cooler chatter about Thomas Cook is taking over the titillation over Signature’s sex life. I’ve heard they’re buying everything from Transat to Canjet to Skyservice to itravel. So far, not a whisper about Sears. C’mon people. There’s nothing else left to buy! Odds are that one of those will stick.

I’m no aviation expert, but from what you read on bathroom walls, Skyservice planes aren’t on anybody’s radar. But with the feds looking at easing foreign ownership rules of airlines, anything might be possible.

Then there’s the Jonathan factor. The Brits are doing their best to remake him in their image, but the thought of a Friisdahl and a Carroll under one umbrella? Is it me, or is that just wrong. 

And Transat? Mon Dieu! We can’t handle another operator melding. The S/S merger is causing enough turmoil. First it was the staff. Now it’s the hoteliers. The prospect of RIU sleeping in their  TUI  beds is not being well received. But come Friday, much of the TUI tittle-tattle may be revealed.

As for Thomas Cook? I’ll keep my ear to the ground. (Won’t be the first time I’ve been found in that position).

News of Signature’s culling is all over the industry. The Montreal office was boarded up yesterday. Sal Buccellato and Michelle Palma have signed off. Toronto groups, ops and customer service are being ‘centralized’. I can’t watch. I know some thinning of the herd may be necessary, but I hate the sound of a pumpkin falling.
