LONDON (Reuters) - British Airways said it expected to deliver a full schedule of flights from London’s Heathrow and Gatwick airports on Tuesday after its computer network recovered from an outage which left 75,000 passengers stranded over the weekend.

“Our IT systems are back up and running and our operation continues to run as planned today with a full flight schedule at Heathrow and Gatwick,” British Airways, which is owned by IAG, said in a statement.
