Q. In October 2007, I paid £197.55 for three flights from Dundee to Birmingham with Whoosh airline. To avoid credit card charges, I used my Maestro debit card. The flights were operated for Whoosh by White Eagle Aviation of Poland. On 9 December 2007, the airline suspended all flights on the route. Customers were advised to submit claims for compensation to White Eagle's managing agent in the UK, BluArrow, who would forward them to White Eagle's lawyers. I did this, but heard no more. I emailed WEA, but they did not respond. The company website had some information on compensation, so I assumed the claims were being processed. What is the situation? MP, Dundee.
