Passengers face more disruption at Heathrow following BA glitch

Updated: 

British Airways passengers are facing a third day of disruption at Heathrow as the beleaguered airline continues to deal with the fallout from a global IT crash.

Both Heathrow and Gatwick have warned Bank Holiday travellers that they should check the status of their flights before travelling to the airports where scenes of chaos unfolded over the weekend.

BA has said it will run a full schedule at Gatwick on Monday and it intends to operate a full long-haul schedule and a "high proportion" of its short-haul programme at Heathrow.

The airline said it was continuing to make "good progress" in recovering from the worldwide IT glitch that grounded scores of planes, leaving thousands of passengers stranded.
