Gatwick Airport had to implement manual contingency plans this week when their flight information screens went down. Their improvised whiteboard-and-walkietalkie method worked - but hundreds of passenger posts and comments on social media show they could done better.
The important thing now is for them to learn from the experience and update their contingency plans, perhaps putting a backup system in place so they are better able to function in the event of a technical fault.
