BA cancelling flights? Massive backlog? What is going on? How does banning carryons lead to flight cancellations?
Personally I would have though it was fairly obvious what the problems are. You only have to watch the news or read a newspaper.
It isn't just a simple case of no carry-on, it's all the additional screening that's being done. On the news last night they said that for flights to the US, for example, pax are being screened three times (before they get to check-in, "normal" screening, then again at the gate).
The situation will slowly sort itself out as people start arriving much earlier for their flights and more prepared than they have been for the last few days.
Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana!
