If you are travelling today or tomorrow with British Airways then you should be aware of the current global IT system outage that is ongoing. All flights are cancelled until at least 18:00
It all started earlier today where all websites were down.
The same was the case on the British Airways mobile app:
Then soon after it was reported on several news sites, that check in counters could not operate and flights could not depart out of Heathrow and Gatwick airport.
The situation is not that all flights are cancelled until earliest 18:00 local UK time.
You can follow the situation on BBC or British Airways own website or Twitter account. In all cases please be very aware of this situation on a very busy travel day due to the national holiday Monday.
The current situation in Heathrows Terminal 5 is that there is filled with people and the message is that baggage is not properly taken care for. So InsideFlyer recommends that you should only travel with carry-on this weekend. Otherwise there is a high risk for your baggage is lost.
