"I do not, however, expect the outage to have lasting financial
repercussions for the group."

Terminals at Heathrow and Gatwick became jammed with angry passengers,
with confused BA staff unable to help as they had no access to their
computers, according to passengers interviewed by Reuters.

Some passengers expressed frustration on Twitter over missing bags and
long waits in telephone queues to speak to BA staff. BA said it had
introduced more flexible rebooking policies for passengers affected.

While other airlines have been hit by computer problems, the scale and
length of BA's troubles were unusual.

Delta Air Lines Inc (DAL.N) cancelled hundreds of flights and delayed
many others last August after an outage hit its computer systems. Last
month, Germany's Lufthansa (LHAG.DE) and Air France (AIRF.PA) suffered a
global system outage which briefly prevented them from boarding passengers.

This is a very venerable system for a critical infrastructure that just
has not been thought out right.

This would never be tolerated in the 1980's All those cellphone are
making our brains numb.
