British Airways are urging customers to contact their banks and/ or credit card providers after personal data was stolen from their website and mobile app. 

Issuing a statement, the airline explained that they are investigating the situation as a matter of urgency. 

"From 22:58 BST August 21 2018 until 21:45 BST September 5 2018 inclusive, the personal and financial details of customers making or changing bookings on our website and app were compromised," they wrote. 

"The breach has been resolved and our website is working normally. We have notified the police and relevant authorities."

The company have stated that they will contact all affected customers directly and will fully reimburse them as well as pay for a credit checking service. 

"We are deeply sorry for the disruption that this criminal activity has caused. We take the protection of our customers’ data very seriously."

The stolen data did not include travel or passport details. For more information, click here

In a move which not many people would attempt, former News of the World editor, Piers Morgan, took to social media yesterday to suggest that he may have a higher global profile than…wait for it…Brad Pitt.

That's right; after the Good Morning Britain presenter copped that he and the Inglourious Basterds actor were travelling on the same plane, Piers put two and two together and happily came up with five.

Tongue firmly in cheek while tweeting to his Twitter followers who number in the millions, Piers wrote: "So, Brad Pitt just got on my @British_Airways plane to London. He's in seat 6F, I'm in 1A. This settles my celebrity status once and for all,"

Acknowledging the broadcaster's joke, British Airways decided to school him on celebrity hierarchy, responding: "Ooops, seems like we made a mistake there, Piers! Any chance you could swap with him?"

Telling the airline that that wouldn't be happening any time soon, Piers sat back and let the Twitopshere argue over whether he genuinely did think airplane seat numbers were directly related to an individual's fame.

Lads, we're pretty sure he's having a bit of a lol…
