It'll be interesting to see what the take up is.

BTW: Memo to Thomson : the May temp in Luxor is NOT 22C....bloody liars !!
The Thomson's reps will frighten the s#it out of them during the transfer and at the welcome meeting. They will be frightened into not leaving the hotel except on a Thomson's package. And if they should venture as far as the hotel door the caleche and taxi drivers will **** them off. They will eat full board at their hotel. Mark my words!

If there are no power cuts the May temperature in the hotel rooms may be 22C, with the AC on full blast.
Ive heard this said about Thomson a lot.

All I can say is that on the two occasions I used them when I first came to Egypt and from what I have heard from a few different friends who travelled with them since is that no such warnings/tactics were used.

In fact I remember being encouraged to get out and about.

At least Thomson are attempting to bring people here, no other company is putting on flights and trying.
