BA are saying a major power failure has caused all passenger check-ins and baggage handling systems globally to crash. One!!?? "BA said a problem within the hub of their system, based near Heathrow, had led to a power outage".
Surely something that could affect BA worldwide should have at least two if not more mirrored systems/hubs geographically far apart? With dedicated links with minimal latency. It was possible in my day, so what and why and how can this have happened?
Is there anyone here dealing with large mission-critical systems able to suggest how BA have messed up so badly other than through penny-pinching and complete incompetence of their IT management?
