British Airways resumes full flight schedule

British Airways has said it will operate a full flight schedule from both Heathrow and Gatwick airports on Tuesday, the first time it has done so in days after a global IT crash caused hundreds of flights to be cancelled and delayed.

However, the airline admitted a "significant number of customers" are still without their luggage following the disruption which began on Saturday. Here is the latest:

  • The global glitch on Saturday affected 75,000 passengers worldwide
  • Many passengers missed flights or their planes were grounded
  • In addition to delays, some passengers reported the airline had also lost their luggage
  • Experts predict compensation costs could top £100 million
  • Computer blackout blamed on "power supply issue" and is not thought to be the result of a cyber attack

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.
