yes but you may have ticked a box (such as "terms & conditions") that allows them to do what they like................

I think I now may have the answer to my question. According to a report on BBC just now, it seems the hackers installed a bit of software into the BA web site which recorded the live data as it was being input by the customers. I had assumed, until then, that they had found their way into a BA database and downloaded it from that.
friartuck: Ticking T&C boxes would still not allow companies to hold your financial data for any length of time beyond the limits specified in the DP rules. Contact details would be a different issue and ticking boxes will allow them to hold stuff such as email contacts, location etc.

And I think the malware was in an advertisement, so perhaps the liability lies with advertiser. I thought that the boss was quite open and 'upfront' on his interview on R4 this morning.

Surely liability would still lay with BA, as itís their site theyíve allowed the ad on. A bit like if you sub in an aircraft which goes tech, you still have ultimate responsibility to get the pax home and compensate them

Sure we donít want to rename this thread a BA hamster wheel?

I travel all the time like many on here and will happily moan about using Ryanair - but most of the time they will get me there on time, no issues.

I have used BA twice in the last year - first time a return to TLV; there was a total baggage system failure. And now my second trip to NCL, this happens. Itís not really good enough is it?

So yesterday I had to block my card before going travelling again as banks donít send cards to hotels or other locations which arenít your home. Frustrating.

If it turns out to be true it will be good to see Osaka return to the airlines network and it's an obvious choice of destination in my opinion for British Airways to expand upon and will be a good addition to it's current flights to the Far East.

FINES & PENALTIES hit them in their corporate pocket. That will teach them to get their IT under control rather quickly. The only thing they will take notice of is a short sharp boot to the proverbial commercial nuts!
BA were asking people to post personal details on Twitter this summer even after being told they breaking GDPR.
Finally after media became involved they relented.

Book writer out to sell a story and Daily Fail fall for it.

Aside from
Wasn't secret as meeting between 2 competing airline senior people can't be. Think lawyers for both sides will have detailed descriptions of what was discussed, by whom and under what parameters.
Anybody who thinks not then has no idea of Anti Competitive Legislation and bearing in mind BA has forked out something close to $1 billion in price fixing lawsuits over last 30 years their lawyers will know the law.

British Airways lays off Hong Kong based cabin crew with immediate effect. Not the best of decisions in my view.

A lot of staff agree with you, and sentiment internally has not been helped by the timing of that announcement.

It certainly appeared to many that the company tried to quietly sneak out the announcement of those redundancies on the very same day as they made a much bigger deal of announcing the name of the designer of their new uniform.

Would have thought Charlotte might have trumped Charleston.
Oh well, amazing what short term incentives and subsidies might produce...
Will it work... who can tell.

The above comment that you replied to was in reference to the fact that the B787 final assembly line is at the Boeing plant based at Charleston SC.

Not sure if that has any significance to your plane change though!

That’s a lot or cancelled and suspended flights.
Stansted looks like a massive reduction based on past summer seasons.
are we seeing the Jet2 effect ?
I was hoping for a slight increased is services to be honest.

Some suggestion that the weekend routes were causing operational problems at LCY - which is Cityflyer's core business.

Big adjustments at Gatwick, a net loss of 12 weekly rotations so far, Im sure there are a lot of time changes compared to last year too. Of course this is to be expected as BA adjusts the schedule to take account of the Monarch slots. I imagine there will be new routes and frequency increases on other routes as BA finalises the fleet plan and possible lease-ins for next summer.

So with all the suspensions and cancellations, how many rotations have gone for all airports and where are the aircraft going. I’m sure at peak times Stansted had 3 aircraft operating.
