British Airways down: Passengers unable to access or view bookings

British Airways passengers have been left unable to access – or cancel – their bookings due to a system outage online.

Customers have taken to twitter over concerns that their bookings have disappeared while others are no longer valid.

"I am trying to check into a flight happening tomorrow. AA redirects me to BA for checkin. AA works, BA does not… "Sorry, due to a system error, we are unable to display your booking. Please contact your local British Airways office or Travel Agent," one passenger wrote.

Another said they're being issued multiple error messages when trying to locate their booking.

"Hey @British_Airways what is going on ? I’m supposed to check-in and the website can’t even find my booking anymore."

"Hey I can’t login to Manage My Booking, and need to pay my balance imminently – do you have system issues?"

The airline told Mirror Money it is working to resolve the issue as soon as possible, however, it was unable to disclose further details of the outage.

"We’re sorry for any issues our customers are having this morning, we’re working to get to the bottom of it as quickly as we can," a British Airways statement said.

Anyone having any issues accessing their bookings can call BA's customer services – however be aware that wait times are likely to be longer than usual due to cancellations and amendments over the Coronavirus outbreak.
