Was just about to say... tried UA and BA; both were unavailable. Delta seemed up.

Probably not a coincidence. Anonymous doesn't just attack random targets though. May just be another group who have decided to jump on the bandwagon. Targeting infrastructure like this will not lead to a good place for anyone

Thought it was me at first, but yup, AA, DL and UA all either down or very slow.
AC, AS, CO and SQ are fine.

Priorityclub was down for me a few minutes ago but is now fine (as is intercontinental), so I wonder if it was just a coincidence. (Not exactly the same prominent target that AA/UA/BA/AF are.) Delta looks OK to me as well.

hmmmm, strange. I can get continental, delta, klm, air canada, but not AA, BA, UA or VS.

Seems like they're after the airlines allowed to fly LHR- USA under the Bermuda I/II agreements
