BA’s glitch isn’t likely to be as costly as some recent outages at US airlines, which have drawn scrutiny from US lawmakers.  The worldwide outage of Delta Air Lines‘ computer systems last month, which grounded hundreds of flights around the world, clipped its revenue last month by $100 million, the airline said. Southwest Airlines had a similar outage in July and a computer outage at United grounded hundreds of flights last year.

British Airways clearly isn’t the only airline to suffer from computer problems. But glitch-free systems could boost as airline’s reputation as much as roomy seats and free snacks.
