Two flights were cancelled on Sunday and Monday due to a technical fault and a luggage confusion.
British Airways Flight 0275 from London-Heathrow International Airport to Las Vegas McCarran International Airport was cancelled on Sunday due a technical fault. The passengers, many holidaymakers, were housed in hotels to continue the journey the next day.
On Monday the passengers took a new flight to Las Vegas, and a few moments after take-off, the flight returned and was cancelled due to a confusion of luggage.
The fury of the passengers was growing and cabin crew alerted the cockpit who called for armed police.

Affected passengers had to spend a second night at Heathrow until Tuesday, when they finally departed for Las Vegas.
Although they finally arrived at the city of the casinos, persist problems with baggage that not arrived at destination.
A spokeswoman for British Airways said: “We fully appreciate how frustrating this experience has been, and have apologised to our customers for the long delay to their flight.”
“We provided refreshments, hotel accommodation and help with expenses during the delay, and the flight departed yesterday.”
