me too.

what's the chances of getting money back through CAA from these jokers?

Will flights be honoured by the airline charted eg. Monarch, or will they have to rebooked (at obviously higher cost?)

There is a claim form and a telephone number for enquiries on the ATOL website

todays newspaper says there there are around 500 holidaying at the moment and up to `1500 bookings, representing 2,500/3,000 passengers - the civil aviation authority will be making arrangements to ensure the firm's customers can fly home at end of holiday'....im not sure if this refers to just the 500 away or bookings!!!

It refers to people actually away on holiday at the moment, there will be no more outbound flights, there are no longer any holidays for the people who have bookings to take, they have lost their holiday, they have to claim to try to get their money back

Hi Doffcocker do you know if anyone is going to take over the hotels owned by ASC or are they going to be left empty like the others along Shanzu beach?

Hi,

I've heard that the Paradise has been sold to an Indian company and that the others are up for sale

Frank,

Have you heard whether they are going to remain as hotels or are they to be redeveloped?

Any news about the Dolphin & Flamingo Hotels and new ownership yet? When wil they re-open or are they open already? Name changes?

We`ve always thought that both these hotels looked attractive and situated on the beautiful and palm-fringed Shanzu beach, but because ASC owned them, we`ve never booked to go there....but we`d definitly be interested now to stay there - if managed through a different company/agency!

Would love to hear any news if anyone has heard anything lately!

Paul,

apologies for late reply and yes they will remain hotels but there are a lot of rumours who are the new owners/investors etc. Most important is that they will be upgraded/re-furbished to bring the tourists back to Shanzu.
