>> British airways resumed some flights from Britain's two biggest airports on Sunday after a global computer system failure created chaos. Hundreds of passengers still waiting for hours at London Heathrow, though. The airline said it aimed to operate the majority of services from Heathrow and a near normal schedule from Gatwick.
Heathrow, however, saying it expected further delays and cancellations of B.A. flights. Some passengers were sleeping on the floor, or on luggage trolleys as they waited for information. Several passengers complained about a lack of information from airline representatives at the airport. Others said their luggage had been lost. While British Airways insisted that most of their IT problems are behind them, they warned passengers not to travel to the affected airports until they have confirmed booking on new flights.
The company could not immediately detail the exact number of flights cancelled over the weekend, but the problems come before a holiday Monday, and at the start of many children's half-term breaks. While other airlines including Lufthansa and Air France have been hit by computer problems previously, the scale and length of British Airway's trouble are unusual.
