British Airways and BAA have announced that all long-haul flights will have moved to Terminal 5 by the end of October this year.
Originally planned for April, the two companies had to postpone the move after Terminal 5's problematic opening in March. A number of issues hit the building, including several IT related failures. The BAA baggage system failed, resulting in 500 cancelled flights and over 23,000 misplaced bags.
