Muscat/London: British Airways flight BA-80 from Muscat to London was delayed on Sunday, after a global computer system outage caused confusion and chaos with planes stuck on runways on Saturday.
“The flight landed at 8.45 am on Sunday morning instead of 6.15 am at Muscat International Airport and took off at 10.45 am,” according to Oman Airports Management Company (OAMC).
Meanwhile, British Airways has said it is aiming to operate a “near normal schedule” at Gatwick airport and the “majority of services” from Heathrow airport on Sunday after a global IT crash crippled the airline.
Thousands of passengers were left stranded after scores of planes were grounded by the major systems failure believed to have been caused by a power supply issue. BA is the latest airline to be hit by computer problems.
Last month Germany's Lufthansa and Air France suffered a global system outage which prevented them from boarding passengers.
