Thomas Cook Risks Customer Exodus After 75% Stock Slump

Thomas Cook Group Plc says it’s “business as usual” as the U.K. travel company tries to secure financing from lenders. Customers might not wait that long.

“I wouldn’t book with them now,” said Terry Harrison while browsing for airfares outside an office of Europe’s second-largest tour operator in London’s financial district. “If they keep going like this, they might go out.” The 56-year-old facilities worker for a private wealth-management company said he last booked a trip to Mallorca with the company about two years ago.
