p British Airways is having a bad start to this holiday weekend.
The airline has announced that its computer systems are having problems around the globe due to a “major IT system failure,” and as a result it’s had to cancel a number of flights departing from the UK, as well as hundreds more being delayed.
The “severe disruption” is extended to parts of British Airways’ website as well, with passengers unable to check-in for upcoming flights, and the airline unable to reschedule or move travelers to other flights.
As of now British Airways has canceled flights departing from the Heathrow and Gatwick airports in London, and is advising passengers with flight before 6:00 PM on Saturday to avoid coming to the airport.
We apologise for the current IT systems outage.
We are working to resolve the problem as quickly as possible.
