Whilst in South Africa this November, I went out and back with BA. It is no surprise that their website needs updating. Not just Comair but Sun-Air ...

PAXboy - are you confusing the South African Sun Air which ceased flying about 20 years ago, with the Danish Sun Air which is still flying as a BA franchisee ? To make it more confusing, there are/were other Sun Air companies in Fiji, New Zealand, Sudan and the USA

Sun Air of Scandinavia are still flying. Billund to MAN and LCY and a charter service connecting Gothenburg with Cambridge and MAN all operate as BA.

Looks like BA have third party issues again, this time with flight planning.

BA delays

Airlines are some of the worst for wanting to blame any significant issue on outsiders, as if they have no responsibility for their various suppliers. Who chose to go with the bottom bidder for this service ?

I’m told that the issue is not so much the ‘third party supplier’, as other airlines who use the system have not experienced any issues, more the interface with the BA system. In other words, it appears to be a BA I.T issue and not a supplier issue.

I see BA's app and website is as stable as ever!! In other words crap!!

Booking a flight via ba.com, the website is absolutely dragging...so slow it takes me up to 30 mins to book the actual flight!
However, the flight appears not to be booked, when I receive a message along the lines of "there was a problem with your payment method, please call our customer service team or try again"
Upon trying again, I received a notification from my bank that a transaction had been made by BA, after checking my bookings it appeared the flight had actually been booked!
When trying to add the booking to the app, it cannot be retrieved...this isn't a new problem, I always have to check in and acquire my boarding passes from the website these days.

But I could have easily tried to book the same flight or a similar timed flight again and not known the original booking had worked, if I hadn't received the bank's transaction notification!
