The British Airways group action deadline has received a short extension to summer 2020, which may mark the final end as to when people can sign-up for a legal case and take part in the GLO.
The first BA data breach emerged almost three whole years ago in 2018, and The Group Action Lawyers has been taking on claims for almost as long. However, there are still thousands of customers who have still not made their claim yet.
If all 400,000 victims claim, they could be sharing a total compensation pay-out of up to an estimated £2.4 billion, according to current estimations based on case law and settled claims information. All you should need to claim is proof that BA notified you of your involvement in one of their two data breaches in 2018, so do not hesitate to register on the BA Group Action site here if you think you are eligible.
A recap of the British Airways data breach
In 2018, British Airways suffered two separate data breaches, one between April and July, and the other between August and September. The result was the exposure of extensive personal details including names, billing addresses, email addresses, payment card details, and CVV security codes written on the back of credit and debit cards.
The breaches affected rewards customers, and users of the airline’s website and app.
