Join The British Airways Data Breach Compensation Action
You can join the British Airways data breach compensation action if you’ve been affected by the recent cyber-attack that has hit 380,000 people across the world.
Both UK and foreign citizens can be eligible to join our group.
If you made a booking, or made a paid change to a booking, between 10.58pm on 21 August 2018 and 9:45pm on 5 September 2018, your payment card information may have been stolen.
British Airways announced in October that customers who made a reward booking between 21st April 2018 and 28th July 2018 may also be affected.
British Airways should already have contacted you to confirm that you’re a victim of the data breach. If you’re not sure, you may have been affected if:
- You made or changed a booking during the breach periods referenced above
- You paid directly through the British Airways site (i.e. you did NOT use Apple Pay or pay a Travel Agent as part of a package)
PayPal customers: British Airways say your card information has not been compromised, but your personal information may have still been exposed (meaning you can still claim).
If you used Apple Pay and/or a Travel Agent, you may still have been affected if you then paid for anything additional through British Airways directly, such as an in-flight meal or a seat reservation.
As this is a recent scandal, we will monitor this criterion for any changes.
