BAA responds to criticism over flight delays

Thousands of air passengers stranded because of snow may finally be on the move as travel operators begin tackling lengthy backlogs.

Heathrow Airport plans to run two-thirds of flights and several airports across the UK are still warning of disruption, including Edinburgh, East Midlands and Gatwick.
