BA cancels flights from London's Heathrow, Gatwick after IT outage
LONDON, May 27 British Airways said it had cancelled all flights from London's Heathrow and Gatwick airports scheduled before 1700 GMT on Saturday due to a global computer outage.
WASHINGTON, March 25 The U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee has postponed a hearing on Comcast's plan to merge with Time Warner Cable until April 9, the committee said on Tuesday.
The hearing had previously been scheduled for April 2. The committee gave no reason for the delay.
Comcast, the No. 1 U.S. cable operator, has announced plans to buy rival Time Warner Cable for $45.2 billion.
The deal has raised eyebrows, although Comcast has pledged to divest 3 million subscribers, so the combined customer base of 30 million would represent just under 30 percent of the U.S. pay television video market. A combined Comcast and Time Warner Cable would also have roughly one-third of the high-speed Internet market.
The proposed transaction is subject to approval by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission and the U.S. Justice Department. (Reporting by Diane Bartz; Editing by Tom Brown)
