Britain's data regulator said Monday it wants to fine British Airways 183 million pounds ($229 million) over a data breach that compromised information on half a million customers -- the biggest to date under new, tougher data regulations.The regulator said that the proposed fine -- equivalent to 1.5 percent of the airline's annual turnover -- was the biggest it had ever imposed.Authorities can fine companies up to 4 percent of annual revenue or 20 million euros ($22.5 million), whichever is higher, for breaching the rules.The parent company of BA, International Airlines Group, said it would fight the proposed fine.
