BA Systems Crash Again!


London Loves Business reports that British Airways systems crashed again this morning leading to long delays and ‘total chaos’ at Heathrow and Gatwick.

Passengers described ‘total chaos’ at Heathrow and problems were also reported at Gatwick after the check-in systems crashed.

The airline said the fault was resolved at about 9am BST and the system was now operating normally and apologised for the ‘temporary’ problem.

A spokesman for BA said: “We are sorry for the temporary check-in problems which caused some delays for our customers first thing this morning.

“This issue is now resolved and our staff are working flat out to help customers get away on their holidays.”

This comes in the wake of the shambolic IT meltdown in May.

BA seem intent on destroying their brand and what remains of their customers' loyalty!

BA Blames Contractor For Power Outage



As per Reuters, a contractor doing maintenance work at a British Airways data center inadvertently switched off the power supply, knocking out the airline's computer systems and leaving 75,000 people stranded last weekend.

The Times quoting a BA source, said the power supply unit that sparked the I.T. failure was working perfectly but was accidentally shut down by a worker. An investigation into the power outage is likely to focus on human error rather than any equipment failure, it said.
