I guess someone above just confirmed my suspicions about cancellation is coming

Notification on BA.com now


We are experiencing some systems problems this morning which are affecting check-in and flight departures

Good grief, if it's not strikes it's this... just heading out to LGW now, sans boarding pass. Mrs RC berating me for not having printed them last night :rolleyes:

App not working either....

The 06:45 from BHD to LHR has just been offloaded back into the terminal. Not too hopeful for the 09:20 that Iím supposed to be on.

Can not check flight status on the website as the airport codes can not be looked up....

Great Success

it doesnít work for flight number either.

Flights seem to be taking off from LHR now though, so maybe things are on the way to being fixed?

if you have the Flightradar24 it works and shows at least some information.

Yes, BA have got flights operating to and from LHR, but with increasing delays.

From what I can make out:

- App nearly unusable for any data operation, including retrieving boarding passes
- BA.com works except for OLCI
- T5 is going to be badly affected since while they can use a backup system, it is going to need more manual assistance all the way through the system.
- LCY least badly affected, but they do have delayed flights building up now, typically 20 - 40 minutes.
- LGW has got longer delays but still operating. So the first flight, to Malta, was due out at 06:15 but departed at 07:23
- big chunk of shorthaul cancellations, noted above, spanning period from 09:00 to the 12:20 to BRU. Nothing after that at the moment.

App wouldnt let me book any tickets. Where is he? I missed the hi vis jacket!

MiraculousM Aug 7, 19 1:17 am

I sat there this morning thinking about how i wanted to book flights to PHL in oct and was weighing out the pros and cons of flying into Newark and getting a train as it was about £50 cheaper, flying on BA direct or flying with AA direct.

Having been stuck in one of these faults (the T5 baggage system went down when i was flying one time), this is another con for BA as this happens far too often.
