It seems that leading Holiday Review website Holidays Uncovered has been closed down by it’s owner TUI.
Holidays Uncovered was launched in 1998 by and became one of the most popular holiday review websites used by British Package Holidaymakers travelling to Lanzarote and elsewhere.
It contained tens of thousands of holiday reviews, including thousands of Lanzarote, and was acquired in 2007 by TUI Group after it became to large for it’s founder to manage.
After an initial investment by TUI to modernise Holidays Uncovered it never really did move to stay up with the likes of cutting-edge Tripadvisor. In fact, it appeared that no further investment had been made in the site since it’s acquisition over 7 years ago.
It seems also that the popularity of other UK Holiday Review sites such as Real Holiday Reports, Holiday Watchdog and Holiday Truths are not what they were several years ago.
The unions representing Baggage Handlers at Lanzarote Aiports have given notice of a series on strikes scheduled to take place in the second half of October 2015.
The dates announced of 18th, 20th, 22nd, 25th, 27th and 29th October 2015 coincide with the busiest flight days at Lanzarote airport being Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Disruption and delays are expected to be considerable.
The employees involved all work for Swissport who handle flights for the majority of airlines at Lanzarote airport.
However, the disruption on the strike days is still expected to have knock-on effects on these airlines. There is also a good chance of other handlers not being willing to cross picket lines.
Unfortunately it is the normal travelling public that suffer when a small minority walk out on strike. They have little regard for the people who may be taking their one annual holiday that they have saved all year for.
Lets hope that common sense prevails and an agreement is reached prior to the strikes commencing.
