British Airways cancels flights

I wonder how airlines ever managed to book flights before computers were used?
In this day and age you mean to tell me if computers go down, the company shuts down?
They don't have any back-up plans for this?

With all that is done by computers, and communicated via the internet, it would take a lot of re-staffing, training, whole new "manual" systems for large data flows, courier systems, communication systems, etc. One shouldn't expect any large corp to be able to just instantly revert to horse-and-buggy. The infrastructure for that isn't in place and hasn't been for decades. Most pilots couldn't even navigate over global distances safely without the autopilots, and the online systems are used to generate the waypoints. What we can hope is that major corporations that are vital to our infrastructure can recover quickly enough to prevent major economic collapses.

Thanks for the heads-up Dave!
