Computer outage at British Airways delays flights worldwide – Los Angeles Times

Air travelers faced delays Saturday because of a worldwide computer systems failure at British Airways, the airline said.

The airline canceled all flights from London’s Heathrow and Gatwick airports until 5 p.m. local time (10 a.m. PDT.) and urged passengers not to go to the airports, which it described as extremely congested.

The airline said it suffered a “major IT systems failure” and was working to resolve the problem. It said in a tweet that the problem is global.

Passengers at Heathrow reported long lines at check-in counters and flight delays. One posted a picture on Twitter of airline staff writing gate numbers on a whiteboard.
