After a day with very few of its planes in the air, British Airways said Sunday morning that it plans to operate “a majority of services” from London Heathrow and a “near normal schedule” at Gatwick.

The airline experienced a “major IT system failure” at 7 a.m. local time on Saturday and cancelled all Saturday departures from London Heathrow and Gatwick airports.

“We expect some further disruption today,” the airline said in a statement on its website at 9:30 a.m. local time.

It was the second such failure at the airline in eight months.
