British Airways has cancelled 91 flights due to a systems failure, 81 of which are scheduled at Heathrow and 10 that are going to or from Gatwick.
On top of that more than 200 flights were delayed, some by as much as five hours. The angry would-be passengers have posted pictures of the lengthy queues at the airports on social media platforms, pushing airport personnel on to fix the IT problem that is making it dangerous to fly.
The airline is currently using analogue systems to avoid the technical fault. Passengers who have had their flights cancelled will have to book on another day through the check-in desk manually or go to ba.com to the ‘manage my booking’ page which has instructions on how to rebook.
BA has issued a statement advising all those who have short-haul flights booked today to check the website periodically to keep updated on the latest developments.
