TRAVELLERS have been left fuming after British Airways website was “unavailable” after flights were cancelled over a network failure.
Another user of the social media site posted: “BA @British_Airways tell you to go online to rebook your flight & when you do…” and added a screenshot of the site saying it was “temporarily unavailable”.
In a subsequent post, they wrote: “Well I’m stuck in Munich my trip to Versailles is now off & I have no idea how/when I can get back up London. BA has no desk at Munich airport. I’m stranded.”
However, a BA spokesperson claimed there was not an issue with their site.
They said in a statement: “ba.com is continuing to operate as normal, but due to high volumes of activity following today’s NATS Air Traffic Control issue, it may have taken a moment or two longer for some customers to access the site.”
