British Airways flights cancelled after 'catastrophic' failure hits IT network
- By Sabine Schwab
All British Airways flights from Heathrow and Gatwick have been cancelled on 27 May. A 'major IT system failure' has disrupted the company's flight schedule worldwide. Long queues formed at both airports on the particularly busy bank holiday weekend. Travellers complained about a lack of information from BA. British Airways has said there is no evidence the outage was caused by a cyber attack.
