    Well what do you expect from "BREAKING NEWS"?

    Jesus I beat those Thaivisa wankers to the punch again and you're still not happy.

    Still I bet all those c u n t s that had their RyanAir flights cancelled are a bit happier now.

    Software issue causes airport delays - BBC News
    A software issue has caused check-in delays at several airports worldwide, and booking problems for many airlines.

    Passengers reported problems at Gatwick, Paris Charles de Gaulle and Melbourne airports among others.
    Gatwick blamed a passenger management system called Amadeus Altea but said the problem had been resolved and there were no further delays.
    Amadeus said it had identified a "network issue" but that services were being restored.

    Several airlines use the Amadeus software to manage reservations and check-in.
    Qantas, Southwest and Qatar are among its customers.
    A spokesman for the Amadeus said: "During the morning, we experienced a network issue that caused disruption to some of our systems.
    "Amadeus technical teams took immediate action to identify the cause of the issue and restore services as quickly as possible. That action is ongoing with services gradually being restored.
    "Amadeus regrets any inconvenience caused to customers."

    Over 100 airlines use Amadeus. Way to many eggs in one basket.

    System crashed because Harry had to check in economy class.System couldn't accept his booking and tried to upgrade him to first no subroutine available for request, hence the glitch.

    Yes, but of course one would then be shepherded to the lounge for a glass of bubbly and some caviar while they fixed the mess.

    Not stuck in the queues with the ranting unwashed.
