Customers have reported that they aren’t able to use the airline’s website and app with one saying he had to miss his flight as he couldn’t fetch his boarding pass

BRITISH Airways’ computer systems are “down worldwide” with the airlines customers taking to social media to complain.

Passengers are saying that their flights aren’t taking off, that there are huge queues at check-in, and that they can’t use the app or website.

One customer, Henry Tail, said he couldn’t log in to the app to fetch his boarding pass and had to miss his flight.

Philip Bloom tweeted: “Stuck on a British Airways plane at Belfast, going nowhere. ‘BA computers down worldwide’, whatever that means!”

The airline admitted to customers using the social media site that it was “experiencing some system issues at the moment”.

In a statement, they said: “We apologise for the current IT systems outage. We are working to resolve the problem as quickly as possible.”

Earlier this morning, customer Roshni Burt wrote from Heathrow’s Terminal 5: “British Airways systems down. Huge queues at check in. No explanation. Not good.”

Morten Amtoft posted a picture of the error message he received when he tried to access the airline’s website.

Another customer, Tom Beckett, said he was stuck in Kiev and made jabbed the airline for its recent decision to scrap free food and drink from their flights.

He wrote: “Dear British Airways, perhaps it’s time to reinvest all that money you aren’t spending on tea and sandwiches on technology.”

Passengers at Heathrow Airport’s Terminal 5 are understood to be at a standstill with the operators saying it was “working closely” with Britain’s national carrier to resolve the issue.
