I am set to fly JFK-LHR on AA and LHR-DEL on VS on May 30/31 on a business class ticket. Flight is morning flight from JFK with a 1:45 minute connection at LHR. I see from the internet that the flights should be at the same terminal at LHR (terminal 3). This is good- as I missed my flight last time at LHR when VS flight parked at a remote stand and the transfer involved 3 buses! A few questions:
The ticket was sold as a single carrier ticket, yet I am flying two airlines that do not have a partnership that I am aware of. Hmmm.
Will I be able to check my bags all the way through?
What if I miss my connection? Who is responsible for that scene?
What is Delhi Airport like? The only website I have found is extremely poor.
Why does VS fly at odd times to/from DEL? Seems all the other flights leave at the opposite time of day. Mind you, I like the times of the VS flights! Will I avoid the crowds in DEL? I am hoping it will be an advantage and less stressful overall.
I have abusiness class ticket, yet when I selected my seat on the A340-300 leg to LHR-DEL, I was able to sit in seat 3A. That the very front! Does that mean I will be in Upper Class? I can't figure it all out.
Any help on these items appreciated
