Cannot check in online

I have tried five or six times to check in online for my flight, which is now about 20 hours away. I keep getting this message: "Sorry, we are unable to offer you Online Check-in for this flight at present." Is the system down?

Perform an FT search for OLCI (on-line check-in) in the thread title, select British Airways, and take your pick from 500 search results! In other words, this must be the most-asked question ever on this forum.

Somtimes there can be a glitcxh in the system where your booking has not been ticketed, try giving the service center a call.

I had a booking fixed last week where it wasnt showing in MMB, and when I called it was for 'technical reasons', i didnt dare enquire !

What?, more than, "why are the taxes so high?" and "Why are the free flights not free?"

I don't believe you!
