TUI is STILL advertising bargain breaks despite axing 30,000 seats to spark MORE travel chaos

TUI is STILL advertising its bargain breaks – despite axing holidays for more than 30,000 passengers this summer.

Customers were left furious today after spotting the airline's ads on TV and social media as millions of Brits had their travel plans crushed.

Tui yesterday announced it would be cancelling around 43 flights a week until June 30 to prevent further problems seen at UK airports this week.

The cancellations will be to and from Manchester Airport and will affect nearly 200 flights and around 34,000 passengers.

But despite the mass destruction of plans nationwide, customers claim they are still being targeted for trips – with many spotting adverts for Tui on TV and online.

One person wrote on Twitter: "What are they still advertising on TV/Social Media for holidays right now when cancelling and ruining hundreds off peoples breaks!!!! Such a joke."

Someone else wrote: "TUI have a cheek advertising on TV #ThisMorning.

"The companies who are cancelling holidays should be banned from advertising holidays for this year, TUI, in particular are pushing holidays thot they are clearly struggling to deliver."

Meanwhile, a fourth blasted: "STOP advertising holidays you can’t fulfill……. …..absolute shambles #TUI #TUIUK."

COPS tell exhausted TUI passengers their flight is CANCELLED after 8 hours

Some Tui passengers were left in tears yesterday when exhausted cops were forced to tell them their flight was cancelled, reading a statement from the airline.

Others have been forced to wait more than eight hours for their flights as queues sweep UK terminals.

Tui this week blamed its long list of flight cancellations on “a combination of factors".

And a lengthy statement on its travel page reads: "Recently, due to a combination of factors causing significant operations disruptions, we made the difficult decision to cancel some of our flights.

"If you are affected by a flight cancellation and were travelling on a Tui package holiday, this means your whole holiday is impacted and thus cancelled.

"Please accept our sincere apologies for the inconvenience and the disappointment that this decision has caused. Please be assured that we have not taken this decision lightly."

It has offered every customer with a cancelled flight a £200 holiday voucher to encourage them to "travel with us again in the future".
