British Airways passengers are facing a third day of travel chaos at Heathrow as the airline continues to deal with the aftermath of a global IT crash.
Both Heathrow and Gatwick airports have warned travellers to check the status of their flights before travelling to the airports.
BA said it will run a full schedule at Gatwick and intends to operate a full long-haul schedule and a "high proportion" of its short-haul programme on Monday.
The airline said it was continuing to make "good progress" in recovering from the worldwide IT glitch that grounded scores of planes, leaving thousands of passengers grounded.
All flights from Heathrow Terminal 3 were grounded for a 'short time' while passengers report aircraft were searched by armed police.Read the full story ›

The Liberal Democrats could be poised to help "change the direction" of the country if they successfully pull off a spectacular by-election victory in Zac Goldsmith's constituency, Tim Farron has said.
Environmentalist Mr Goldsmith announced on Tuesday that he would quit as Tory MP for Richmond Park following the government's decision to nominate Heathrow as its preferred choice for airport expansion.
Speaking to ITV News, the Lib Dem leader said: "Given this is the constituency most hit and worst hit by the extreme version of Brexit Theresa May has chosen to adopt, this is an opportunity for them to send a message to this government that could change this government's direction."
ITV News Deputy Political Editor Chris Ship said: "This by-election is in an area where 70 per cent of people voted to remain in the EU. The Lib Dems position themselves as the most pro-EU party, so they are hoping for something good from this."
Theresa May has insisted a third runway at Heathrow Airport will meet the required air quality standards.
Responding to concerns raised at Prime Minister's Questions by Tania Matthias, the Tory MP for Twickenham, Mrs May said: "The government looked very closely at this issue of air quality and environmental impact of all three schemes that were proposed by the Airports Commission. We took extra time to look at those. We wanted to look more particularly at the air quality issues.
"The evidence shows that air quality standards can be met as required by all three of the schemes including the north west runway at Heathrow.
"But... the issue is about more than airports, because the question of air quality is also about road transport and that's why we are looking to do more in relation to what we're doing for air quality. It's why, for example I'm pleased to see that we're at such a leading edge in the provision of electric vehicles."
A new runway at Heathrow Airport might be built over the M25, the Transport Secretary has said.
Chris Grayling's comments follow Tuesday's announcement that the government has chosen Heathrow as its preferred airport expansion project.
Speaking on BBC Radio 4's Today programme, Mr Grayling said: "One of the things that Heathrow has been looking at is doing what many other airports have done around the world - which is to build their runway over the top of the road rather than tunnelling the road underneath it.
"It is a cheaper and quicker way of doing it. I am, of course, very concerned to make sure that, as this runway is built, it doesn't cause massive disruption on the M25, so I think this is a sensible way.
"It is a very gentle hill up which the planes would take off rather than a flat surface. It's what happens at very many airports around the world."
A government decision to build a third runway at Heathrow means the airport will only get much busier.
While the controversial decision might mean economic lift-off for Britain, it spells a period of turbulence for Theresa May as Prime Minister.
