The article presents the authors' comments on the relevance of the Air Travel Organisers' Licensing (ATOL) logo. The author states that it's bad enough when consumers see an ATOL logo on a website and assume, often incorrectly, that everything on that site is protected. According to her, if the boss of a big consortium and Great Britain's Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) can't agree on a major supplier's use of the logo then alarm bells really ought to ring.
