Questions Of Cash: Airline cancelled flights – and then disappeared

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.

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.
