Power cut lands BA in a right mess

By Lindy McDowell

A power surge that lasted "only a few minutes" is said to have led to the IT failure at British Airways which, in turn, led to chaos affecting 75,000 customers in 170 airports in 70 countries.

People missed out on attending funerals, weddings, important business meetings, you name it.

Vital medical operations had to be cancelled.

The follow-on to all this upset is unquantifiable.

Never mind cyber attack.

Sometimes you really do get the feeling we are just a power cut short of Armageddon.
