British Airways cancels flights from Heathrow over IT outage




 A major global computer failure today forced British Airways to cancel all its flights from Heathrow Airport, leaving travellers to face many problems.

The UK's flag carrier apologised for the "global system outage" and said it was "working to resolve the the problem as quickly as possible".

Heathrow Airport said it was "working closely" with British Airways to solve the issue. It is not known how many flights are affected but passengers have reported issues with flights to and from Heathrow, Gatwick and Belfast.

BAs jet landing at Heathrow are unable to park up as outbound aircraft cannot vacate the gates, which resulted in passengers being stuck on aircraft.

Other airlines flying in and out of Heathrow and Gatwick are unaffected.

Passengers are advised to check the status before travelling to the airport.

Planes were grounded and passengers stuck either in terminal buildings or on planes, as a shortage of available gates meant incoming passengers had no opportunity to disembark, a newspaper reported.

Précis 2017
From asking his party men to ‘live a simple life and serve the people’ to taunting the BJP for its ‘crocodile tears’, Chief Minister and BJD supremo Naveen Patnaik has not only become politically invincible, he seems to be so in the coming years too.
