im planning to fly

6:40am Dec 19 (MAN) 7:40am Dec 19 (LGW) BA 2901 British Airways

10:55am Dec 19 (LGW) 5:55pm Dec 19 (ACC) G0 100 Ghana International 12 hrs 15 mins

Will i be able to make the connections? i have to change terminals and maybe check in again.

You should be all right it may not be possible to through check your bags!!So when checking in ask if it at all possible for a suitable first off sticker to go on it. Then , if not, get your bags at Gatwick and take the train to South Terminal and join the L O N G queue for your checkin. Again just see if you can edge a little forward.
The best way would be to jusy have cabin bag but I suspect that you will have some Christmas presents(by the way dont wrap them) and will have too much for hand bag.It does look a little tight to me but you would have had to fly down the night before otherwise. hope there is no snow

The times I've come in from the U.S. and landed before 9AM I have zipped right through customs and passport control. I think you will be ok.

Quoting Rdwootty (Reply 1):
L O N G queue for your checkin

Might be flying business class so hopefully no queues. i recall last time i flew Ghana Airways we waited about 40min to check in as the crew was using the business class area to check in

You should be fine - coming back you'll arrive before the first transatlantic flights so immigration shouldn't be too bad.
