British Airways says restarts flights from Gatwick and Heathrow

LONDON, May 28 (Reuters) - British Airways said it aimed to operate a near normal schedule of flights from Gatwick airport and the majority of flights from Heathrow on Sunday after a global computer system caused chaos for thousands of customers.

"We are continuing to work hard to restore all of our IT systems and are aiming to operate a near normal schedule at Gatwick and the majority of services from Heathrow on Sunday," BA said in a statement.

"We are refunding or rebooking customers who suffered cancellations on to new services as quickly as possible," it said. "We are extremely sorry for the huge disruption caused to customers."
