BREAKING NEWS: All British Airways flights cancelled!

British Airways computer systems have crashed across the world, sparking chaos at airports with massive queues and delayed flights.

All BA flights from Heathrow and Gatwick before 6pm have been cancelled, including all GCC bound flights, because of a ‘major IT system failure’ that is causing ‘severe disruption worldwide’.

Hundreds of fliers are stuck in ‘huge’ check-in lines and parts of BA’s website and app are not working – causing people trying to check-in online to miss their flights.

Several passengers reported that the captain and gate staff at Gatwick Airport said the airline could be under a cyber attack.

The airline said it was ‘experiencing a global system outage’ and added it was ‘working to resolve the problem as quickly as possible’.
