I think we are going to take a chance on 2 hour check in and drive from home, only takes 40mins. Thanks for the info though, we may change our minds nearer the time.
Does anyone have any ideas as to a good cheap hotel? Some people want double rooms but some of us are prepared to go 3 or 4 to a room to save money.
Also, what can you tell me about terminal 4 at Heathrow? All the hotel shuttle services seem to go to 1, 2 and 3 only. But we depart from Terminal 4.
Any ideas, tips and suggestions will be gratefully received.
A taxi to Terminal 4 took literally a few minutes and cost £10.50.
It is easy to find in the dark as well, as it is lit up in purple at night!!
I used heathrow in February, and the duty free shop is a rip off..The price of tobacco was only slightly cheaper than our local Tesco. Must admit I didnt check the cigarette prices but I bet they were the same. Tried to query it with the BAA rep in the shop, but she was foreign and hardly spoke English!!...suggest you buy overseas less chance of getting ripped off..
have a good trip
There was news piece on BBC Look North tonight about 'meat dogs' brought into Newcastle Airport to ensure no dangerous or potentially illegal foodstuffs are brought in (which would include anything that increases the risk of bird flu)
They are to all intents and purposes attempting to minimize the risk. I wouldn't take it too personally, I'd more comforted that at least Customs is doing its job
We are flying BA for both flights and when I've looked on their website and they say it's an hour to connect from international to domestic so I'm now wondering if my agent has left me enough time to get through....
If we are even slightly delayed we'll miss our connection to Newcastle. If this happens it will be out of our control, therefore are they obliged to put us on the next flight up which is the 09.40?
BA should do everything possible to help you make your connection, and I have made similar connections in under an hour without problem. If your inbound flight is delayed, it is worth telling the cabin crew (or the BA ground staff before it even departs if possible) so that appropriate arrangements can be made
does anyone have directions, info on how to get from luggage claim in terminal 1 to depatrures. this will be my first time in heathrow and dont have long to catch connecting flight and dont want to get lost
if for example you are flying BA on both legs I imagine you won't have to pick up your luggage at all.
