British Airways extended a halt on ticket sales for some short-haul flights out of London Heathrow airport by another week to Aug. 15, adding to the summer’s travel chaos.

The move comes just a day after the unit of IAG SA imposed a moratorium on sales though Aug. 8, citing daily passenger capacity limits imposed by Heathrow to help cope with a staffing crisis. BA indicated that further suspensions are likely until the end of the summer travel season.
