Michael Jackson’s death hurts travel sellers

(Travel agents, Tour operators) Permanent link

With the sudden death of Michael Jackson, travel companies are faced with refunding concert tickets that were purchased as part of London packages.

Fifty concert dates were scheduled for London's O2 Arena, starting July 13. Thousands of tickets were sold by companies including Superbreak, Thomson Experience and Lastminute.com, according to a report in the U.K.’s Travel Trade Gazette (TTG).

Superbreak’s Ian Mounser told TTG that about 500 concert packages had been sold through travel agents. Mounser said he believed that many Michael Jackson fans still would come to London and spend money on other entertainment, such as West End theater.
