      I have been told that wheelchair assistance can only be obtained at a counter in the landing area, not brought directly to the plane. Does anyone have experience with requesting a wheelchair at Heathrow? I will be arriving on a Delta flight from the US. Thanks, Kriti9

    • Arriving Heathrow 7:00am T4--how busy is it and best way to get to T1

      Heathrow Jul 5, 2014 at 3:15 PM

      Hi--
      My daughter and I are arriving Heathrow T4 at 7:00 am; no checked luggage but have a separate (not through-ticket) flight to Edinburgh from T1. I didn't realize we needed so much time to transfer and we only have 2:15 minutes to transfer, and now I am panicking in reading these posts...
      How busy is Heathrow at 7? I know we have to go through immigration control and then go out to get transportation to T1; we will be sitting near the front of the plane and should be able to get off fairly quickly.
      We are flying in on Delta and our Edinburgh flight is Virgin Atlantic (they are partners now), but booked separately.
      Even though not officially "connecting"--if we have no luggage and are checked in and have a boarding pass can we get on the connector busses? . or do we need to get on the Heathrow express?
      Thank you for any advice in navigating this as quickly as possible.

      London Yesterday

      We have three people going to London from 3/10/14 to 6/10/14, the question I want to ask is Where is the best place to book hotel in London?
      We wanted to stay somewhere that is close to transport with easy & fast access to the Central London.
      We have a budget of Aud$400 for 3 nights for three of us.
      If more cheaper accomodations are bit further away from C. London.
      What are the costs of transports to take us there?
      Thank you.

    • 241 offers vs. booking online prior to arrival

      London Jul 1, 2014 at 11:14 AM

      Hi, going to be in London with 2 kids (young teens) during last week of July. Wondering benefit of booking tickets ahead at Hampton Court, vs. using the 241 option when there. I'm not interested in saving a few dollars if it means we need to stand in line for an hour. Thanks for any advice you can offer.

    • Two names on passport and e-ticket, tied name on booking ba.com

      London Jul 14, 2014 at 11:32 AM

      My first name in the passport is "Oliver Norbert".
      I've bought my e-ticket at an agency and they printed it out.The name is perfectly spelled,as it is in the passport I carry.
      Upon arriving home and accessing my booking on the official site of British Airways I have noticed that the name on the booking is "Olivernorbert". Is this a problem or will it cause any problems during or after the on-line check-in process or at the airport?If the answer is yes,then who should I contact in connection to this issue.
      Thank you very much.
