BA flights cancelled at Gatwick and Heathrow

Absolute chaos at the airports. Flights are being cancelled and passengers told to go home. Apparently due to technical problems IT related - something to do with check in and baggage...

The advice on the website says to check flight updates before coming to the airport but although everyone reports error messages when attempting to access their flight including me.

Does anyone know how long this type of problem takes to resolve? I'm due to fly out long haul on Saturday and really quite worried...

Thank you

I imagine it will be fine by Saturday. BA has notoriously unreliable IT systems and this happens not infrequently, but I can't recall a situation before where it has gone on for days. I gather that they are prioritising long haul over short haul, as well - it's mainly been short haul flights that have been cancelled.

Thanks GCA that's reassuring advice

Radio 4 says long haul not affected.
