4 MARCH 2020: BRUSSELS

Reports emerged that Brussels Airlines initiated a lawsuit against a 25-year-old man after he hacked into their staff ticket booking system in 2016 and managed to book three free business-class flights to New York worth €6,000 (c. £5,250) each. He then cancelled the tickets, resulting in a ‘refund’, and manipulated the URL so the tickets were still valid. The airline is demanding €20,000 (c. £17,500) in compensation.
