My sympathies to those who have lost their jobs."Thomas Cook has collapsed after last-minute negotiations aimed at saving the 178-year-old holiday firm failed.The UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) said the tour operator had "ceased trading with immediate effect".
It has also triggered the biggest ever peacetime repatriation, aimed at bringing more than 150,000 British holidaymakers home.
Peter Fankhauser, Thomas Cook's chief executive, said the firm's collapse was a "matter of profound regret".
Commenting as the company entered compulsory liquidation, Mr Fankhauser also apologised to the firm's "millions of customers, and thousands of employees".
The tour operator's failure puts 22,000 jobs at risk worldwide, including 9,000 in the UK."

The Federal Reserve should get our interest rates down to ZERO, or less, and we should then start to refinance our debt. INTEREST COST COULD BE BROUGHT WAY DOWN, while at the same time substantially lengthening the term. We have the great currency, power, and balance sheet.....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 11, 2019
....The USA should always be paying the the lowest rate. No Inflation! It is only the naïveté of Jay Powell and the Federal Reserve that doesn’t allow us to do what other countries are already doing. A once in a lifetime opportunity that we are missing because of “Boneheads.”— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 11, 2019

The transport logistics company revealed a £2m discrepancy in its accounts last month.
Sebastien Desreumaux, currently head of iForce, will take over from Mr Laffey.
A review of its statements by new chief financial officer, Anoop Kangits, found that the 2018 adjusted operating profit figure of £55.3m was overstated by about 4%.
Publication of the firm's financial results for the six months to 31 May 2019 has now been delayed to early September.
The firm added that half year profits were likely to be "significantly lower" than suggested in a recent trading update, and that it is "applying a more prudent approach to revenue recognition".
Ironically the company's largest shareholder is troubled fund manager Neil Woodford, who holds a 22.9% stake.
