British Airways Worldwide IT Systems Failure – Flights Delay and Cancelled, Thousands Affected.

British Airways Cancelled Flights

A Worldwide British Airways IT systems failure has caused thousands of people to have flights cancelled this weekend, with catastrophic effects.

All flights involving London Gatwick and Heathrow airports were cancelled on Saturday and most of Sunday. Other major airports have been affected around the world.

Thousands of passengers have been grounded worldwide with all flights cancelled at one point on Saturday. Baggage has also piled up chaotically. On Saturday and most of Sunday, British Airways asked all passengers to stay away to avert further chaos.

The airline has apologised, and told passengers not to come to the airport.

BA chief executive Alex Cruz said: “We believe the root cause was a power supply issue.”

Under EU regulations, many passengers have rights to care such as meals, refreshments and accommodation. If you need to know more, click HERE.

British Airways may also have to pay compensation if they are found to be directly at fault. If your British Airways flight was cancelled flying into or out of the EU, you can submit a claim HERE.

Big thanks for the £304.70 transferred to my bank account today. My claim related to a three-leg flight from Norwich UK to Phoenix USA via Schiphol. The CAA suggested I had a good case but could do nothing because the delay occurred within Dutch jurisdiction. I twice did battle with KLM/Delta myself but they would not budge. Another claims firm tried but threw in the towel. So congratulations to Claim4Flights for taking it on and winning – and for getting the money transferred into my bank account within two days of notification. Very impressed!
