I'm in exactly the same position as yourself Alan. Compo agreed on the 4th Sept. Payment within 28 days like yourself.
I'm not very hopeful

@Tyzap - I trust you managed to get alternate flights before they sky rocketed ? I guess you’ll be approaching your credit card company for a refund ?
I found replacement flight but it cost quite a bit more, and prices were going up as I was booking.
Claim for a full refund has gone in already:)

I spoke to Thomas Cook on Saturday who reassured me that because compensation is covered by the EU, I would still receive it even if they were to cease trading (as transpired to be the case).
Is this fundamentally incorrect then? Reading up on it it does indeed seem that although such cases are covered by EU law, it is still the airlines that pay. You would assume then, that since the airline no longer exists, that this would not be possible.
Presumably such compensation would not be covered by ATOL / ABTA etc?
Advice appreciated, thanks.
