Thomas Cook Chairman's sneering arrogance takes the biscuit

21 October 2019

TSSA today condemned former Thomas Cook chairman Frank Meysman's "sneering arrogance" for going on holiday just days after the firm's collapse.

Manuel Cortes, leader of TSSA which represents Thomas Cook retail workers said, “This rubs salt in the wound of both our members and holidaymakers who are suffering because of Meysman’s incompetence whilst he swans off to “The Switzerland of Russia”.

“But what really takes the biscuit is Meysman’s sneering arrogance when he boasts that he’s “not a typical Thomas Cook customer – and prefers to use Airbnb.

“He was happy enough to take money from Thomas Cook customers – he was paid £307,000 last year by the company. But he thinks he’s a cut above them when it comes to planning his holidays.

“It’s clear that he didn’t care for his company or their products.

Manuel Cortes is giving evidence on the collapse of Thomas Cook to the Business Committee in the House of Commons tomorrow (Tuesday) morning.
