British Airways said his behaviour was

British Airways says it is investigating "as a matter of urgency" the theft of customer data from its website and mobile app.

The airline fessed up to the mega-breach on Thursday, revealing that the payment cards of at least 380,000 customers have been "compromised" in a theft of data from the company's online booking systems.

The stolen data did not include passport information or travel details.

The airline discovered on Wednesday that bookings made between August 21 and September 5 had been infiltrated in a "very sophisticated, malicious criminal" attack, BA Chairman and Chief Executive Alex Cruz said.

Alex Cruz said: "At the moment, our number one goal is contacting those customers that made those transactions to make sure they contact their credit card bank providers so they can follow their instructions on how to manage that breach of data".

This isn't the first time an airline's customers have been affected by a data breach.

BA said that all customers booked to fly today and in the near future would be unaffected and should check in as normal. But what you do after you call the bank?

"The airline has actually been working hard and succeeding of late".
