I was just checking out BAA's website and it would appear that from March 28th 2004 BA flight BA27 LHR-HKG will move from Terminal 4 to Terminal 1. Can anyone confirm this and if so explain why this is happening?
I used to think the brain is the most fascinating part of my body. But, hey, who is telling me that?

Other long haul flights that generate a lot of feeder traffic will be moved also, JFK being one. Connections will be made much easier for transfering passengers as you won't have to make the mammoth trek between T4 and T1.

P.S. I hope they put extra c/i desk at T1 - those little tiny islands are no good at all for big flights, the queues go round the houses and out the door ! Its bad enough with SA trying to check in their 2 JNBs and a CPT at once, bedlam - now add BA doing theirs, what a nightmare !

With 4 (Well with the Hong Kong flights) British Airways B747 flights and 3 South African Airways B747 flights all in there around the evening period i'm guessing the check in area is going to be pretty crowded. Thats over 2000 people at around the same time, not to mention all the evening short haul departures. The morning is going to have the same flights arriving from their destinations, so the Baggage claim will get pretty crowded too!
