American Airlines says data breach affected small number of customers

The hackers had access to the personal data of a “very small number” of American Airlines Group customers and employees through a phishing scam that affected some employee email accounts, the airline said Tuesday.

American discovered the breach in July, according to a Sept. 16 notification letter shared with Montana state regulators. The airline said in a written statement that it had no evidence that any personal data was misused.
