British Airways cancels most flights from London
LONDON (AP) — British Airways has canceled all flights from London's Heathrow and Gatwick airports as a global IT failure causes severe disruption for travelers.
The airline says it has suffered a "major IT systems failure."
BA says terminals at Heathrow and Gatwick have become extremely congested and it is cancelling all flights from the airports until 6 p.m. local time. It is urging passengers not to go to the airports.
Earlier, passengers at Heathrow reported long lines at check-in counters and flight delays.
BA has not said what is causing the computer problem, but says it is working to resolve it as quickly as possible.
