British Airways Computers Spark London Travel Chaos

British Airways said many of its computer systems are running again as the carrier pushed to recover from a massive technology failure that disrupted hundreds of flights and stranded thousands of passengers worldwide over the past two days.

“All my British Airways colleagues on the ground or in the air are pulling out all the stops to get our operation back up to normal as quickly as we possibly can,” Chief Executive Officer Alex Cruz said Sunday in a video message from the airline’s operations center near London’s Heathrow airport. “We are not there yet. But we are doing our very best to sort things out for you.”
