British Airways systems outage—-again

People on FlyerTalk are reporting that the BA systems are down, as of around 6 pm there. Some planes are unable to take off because. The pilots cannot use the load calculator software, and people are unable to get into the website to check in for a flight, make a new booking, or change an existing one.

Just FYI if you have a BA flight coming up or want to book one.

This happened on Feb. 22 as well, although I don’t know if it affected flight departures.

All BA short haul flights out of Heathrow were cancelled Saturday morning. It also affected flights out off Manchester and Edinburgh.

One wonders whether the Russian hackers are behind this particular incident--and I am not, by nature, conspiracy-minded.

No, BA specifically said this was not caused by an external source.
