Connection time is 1:55. Booking states terminal change. Is this enough time? Do I have to go through Passport control in London and will I have to collect my bags or will they go straight through to Paris? Do I take a bus to the other terminal (not sure which terminals I will arrive/depart) and how long does that take?
Your bags will go straight to Paris. You will take a bus to your departure terminal. You should have enough time.
Hi. I've I have a connecting flight at London Heathrow. I have three flights and I was told I need the boarding pass for my final flight printed at Heathrow. My connecting flight is departing from terminal 3. Airline is Quantas. Where do I go to get my boarding pass when I land at Heathrow? Thanks
Arrive on BA from Belfast to Terminal 5, have flight to Rome booked on separate ticket from T4. Do I have to claim my baggage and then go through departures or can I use flight connexions?
Yes, since it's two separate reservations you will have to claim your bags and take them to the second airline.
Will 2.5 hr be sufficient to do the fight connection at Heathrow? Will be flyng from dubin and then to Calgary by air canada. Will I have to go through passport control again? Assume immigration at Calgary?
Connecting on BA from LAX to EDI, have 1.5 hours, should I check luggage or carry on suitcase. I am traveling on two separate bookings and they won't link them.
I fly in on Lufthansa arriving at 6.40pm
I fly out on Singapore airlines at 8.50pm Both will be in terminal 2. Enough time to collect luggage and check in with Singapore?
I will be arriving by National Express bus at Terminal 5 at 10:37AM on a Tuesday morning. My flight leaves Terminal 4 to the USA at12:30 PM. Will I have enough time to check in, go through customs, and get a boarding pass or should I take the bus that arrives at T5 at 9:07AM?
Personally, I would take the Earlier bus, T4 is pretty isolated.
In June, arriving on Virgin Terminal 3 at 6:45 am [assuming nothing changes]. Booking a separate flight on British Air from Terminal 5 to Milan and options are either leaving at 10:45 am OR 12;00 pm. Will only have carry on luggage. Is the 10:45 am "safe" or do we book the 12 pm instead?
I think the 10:45 would be fairly safe.
Hi
I arrive T5 from Africa then need to get to T4 and re-checkin for a flight to Doha and only have 2hrs can it be done or should I just have a nights layover?
I think that would be really difficult if it's two separate reservations. I would't try it.
yep I have come to same conclusion! bus is 20mins leaving T5 could take an over an hour plane is way to tight by the looks of things. will just fly next day is not a huge issue. thanks for reply
Hi flying with BA from Leeds to Heathrow and on to Miami ( also BA) ton the same booking, does 1hr 40 give enough time to go from T5 to T3? Will checked bags go automatically through to the 2nd flight? What's the best way to get to T3, is there something I can download?
Yes, your bags will be sent through automatically. There is a shuttle bus between terminals.
I am flying in from SFO on virgin atlantic into heathrow terminal 3 at 4:10pm...I want to book a flight to Rome with alitalia in terminal 4 at 6:50pm. will that be enough time? I will have checked bags.
