London's Heathrow and Gatwick airports were closed for the whole day on Saturday after a power supply problem disrupted its flight operations worldwide and also hit its call centres and website leading to large-scale flight disruptions leaving several thousand passengers stranded at the two airports.

BA said on Twitter it would run a full schedule at London's Gatwick on Monday and intended to operate a full long-haul schedule from Heathrow along with a high proportion of short-haul service.

The airline resumed some flights from Britain's two biggest airports on Sunday, but hundreds of passengers were still waiting for hours at London Heathrow.
