The European Court of Justice has ruled illegal an EU-US agreement that allows European airline passenger data to be transferred to the US authorities. The court said the May 2004 agreement did not ensure privacy protection for European travellers. European airlines have been obliged to give US authorities passengers' names, addresses and credit card details. The measure - opposed by the European Parliament - was designed to help prevent acts of terrorism. I wonder if Airlines have ever put this in there small print in tickets that your info is getting shared. Especially your credit card details!
