British Airways Data Breach Compensation Action
"Our lawyers are working on over 20 different data breach actions. As a victim of the British Airways data breach, you can join our compensation action now!"
Are You Eligible To Join The British Airways Data Breach Compensation Action?
You may be eligible to claim in the British Airways data breach compensation action if you made a booking, or changed a booking, between 10.58pm on 21 August 2018 and 9:45pm on 5 September 2018.
British Airways announced in October that customers who made a reward booking between 21st April 2018 and 28th July 2018 may also be affected.
You should have received an email from British Airways to confirm that you have been affected by the data breach, although British Airways has been heavily criticised for their handling of the breach so far, and we cannot be sure whether all customers have been advised. If you have received notification from British Airways, get in contact with us even if the above time period does not apply.
Some 380,000 people have been affected by the breach. British Airways, as the largest airliner in the UK, has an important duty to protect the data of the customers they hold. The fact that hackers have been able to access incredibly personal and sensitive data for such a large volume of people is simply unacceptable.
Anyone from around the world who is affected by the British Airways data breach can join our action. The breach falls within UK jurisdiction, so Claimants outside the UK should be eligible to join our group.
Will I Win Compensation?
This was a sustained attack which took place for more than two weeks.
In other actions where payment data is compromised, we often find that the payment information exposed is only partial information. In the British Airways data breach, full card numbers, expiry data information and security codes (CVV) on the reverse of cards have been compromised, together with the personal information of the customer.
Victims of the British Airways data breach are at an immediate risk of fraud
Given the number of people affected, the nature of the data comprised and the fact that the data was exposed for a prolonged period of time, we’re offering No Win, No Fee representation for victims of the action. British Airways has already accepted that they will pay compensation to those who suffer a financial loss, so we’re confident we will win the action.
