Computer crash brings misery to air passengers
Sunday 26 February 2012
Flights were delayed and passengers faced queues of up to two hours after check-in computers crashed at Scotland's busiest airport. A hardware fault caused the computers to go down at Edinburgh Airport at about 7am yesterday.
A spokesman for airport operator BAA said: "We had a slight issue this morning with the network which meant that we lost some computer services... it did not cause any cancellations or any great delays, but it did cause some queuing in the check-in area between 7am and 9am."
