Former England manager Sam Allardyce was amongst thousands of passengers that were delayed at Manchester Airport after an IT failure prevented many from checking-in at ALL three terminals.
Allardyce, a frequent visitor to Spain, was caught up in huge queues, of which many travellers had been waiting to check-in for three hours, or longer.
“We apologise to our passengers for the inconvenience,” said a Manchester airport spokesman.
The IT issue has been resolved after problems first arose at 11.30am on Saturday.
The backlog of passengers has eased and there are no longer any queues at check-in.
However the issue lead to knock-on delays on some flights.
It is believed some airlines attempted to check customers in manually during the IT failure.
