About a month ago I paid online for a flight with a European Airline.
Somehow (no fault of my own) the payment didn't go through although at the time it showed the payment pending.
The next day my bank notifies me of possible fraudulent activity and thus locks my online account.
Several days later the airline later email me about this non payment.
Now I am back in the UK I have contacted my bank, and furthermore contacted the fraud centre.
They notified me of the fraudulent activity was actually the airline getting into my personal online bank account with no permission.
So regardless of if, why or what their intentions are / were, is this not illegal for an airline, or anyone, to invade a person's privacy like this?!!
Can they just get away with it?
Thanks in advance
