    Nov 19, 2015
    I am flying from Istanbul on BA arrive LHR 10.30am on saturday...arrive terminal 5..have only 2 hrs to get to Terminal 2 to fly United (standby) to US...too risky with luggage? Probably )- other option is go to Luton and transfer..maybe have to sleep over or go to CDG night before and fly early am fron Paris..thanks for any suggesitons!


    Yeah, I don't see how that would be possible.


  • how long?

    how long will it take for a passenger to clear customs etc when arriving at Terminal 5 Heathrow at 2.45 this afternoon from USA


  • Enough time for connections?
    Nov 11, 2015
    We fly AA 86 from ORD to LHR in Feb '16 arr 8:35 AM and depart for FCO on British Air 0560 (term 5) at 12:45. Our return from FCO to LHR BA 0551 arr LHR 09:45 (term 5) and dip AA 11:50. Booked flights separately (AA and BA). will there be enough time for connections? We could just pack carry-ons if that helped.


    On your way there you should have plenty of time, but on the way back it will be difficult with checked bags unless you can get BA to check them through to Chicago in Rome.


    Thanks!! Does AA come and go terminal 3?


    Yes, all AA flights at Heathrow use Terminal 3.

  • Connection time?
    Dec 15, 2014
    I arrive London Heathrow from Madrid at 0950 (dont know which terminal) and leave terminal 5 at 1120 for Chicago. Is there time time for this connection (ie 1hr 30 ) and do i have to go thro security again.


    This question can't be answered unless we know what airlines you are flying


    Hi Zap sorry about that - Flt American 8816 operated by Iberia from Madrid to LHR dep 0820 arr 0950 and then Flt American 6195 operated by BA dep LHR 1120 arr O'Hare 1345.


    Both flights will be in Terminal 5. Yes you will have to go through security but you will not have to go through UK Immigration.


    Once many thanks for your excellent input - just one thing more will we have enough time for the connection at Heathrow ?

    I have a flight with UA, from LRH to MCO and it stops of IDA. The stop over time is 1hour 14minutes. Will this be enough time? What do i have to do to get on the right flight?


    1 hr 14 mins is not sufficient for an International -> Domestic transfer at IAD. It's possible, but it's below the minimum connection time. You arrive in the C/D concourse at IAD, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, and re-check your bags with United, then go through security and back to your departure gate which will also be on C/D. You should contact whoever you booked this ticket from, notify them that it is an improperly short connection, and ask to be rebooked on a later flight to MCO or an earlier flight to IAD.

    Flight from Chicago arrives at LHR at 7:50, departs for St Petersburg, Russia, at 9:20. Is it enough time to make connection?

    Yes, that should be enough time. You will not have to go through UK Immigration for your transfer. http://www.heathrowairport.com/heathrow-airport-guide/flight-connections/terminal-5-international-connecting-to-terminal-5-international
