Baggage Question

Tue Aug 28, 2007 11:44 pm

Hi folks,

In two weeks i'm flying to YYZ from BCN with a stopover at LHR.
The first leg is BCN-LHR with BA and then LHR-YYZ with AC. I was wondering if my baggage would be checked all the way through or I have to take it in LHR and check it to YYZ.

I also have to transfer from T1 to T3 in LHR, any comments on how it is??
Thanks

If the two segments are on the same ticket/itinerary then your luggage will be interlined through the system and you won't have to claim it at Heathrow. If it's two separate tickets then it's your responsiblility to check your luggage onto the second flight after baggage reclaim at LHR.

The transfer between T1 and T3 is pretty simple. If your luggage is checked through, follow signs for Flight Connections. Below is a link to describe the whole process:

It's always a good idea to double check your luggage ticket and verify with the agent to insure that your bag will get to where it needs to.

A question from a curious a.netter:

Why would you connect between carriers of diferent alliances when you can fly either a OW or STAR itinerary and earn more miles?

Thanks for the answers.

I bought the itinerary using ITA SOFTWARE and Lastminute and this was the cheapest. They may have some kind of codeshare with BA for flights out of BCN and MAD I supose, because my ticked was finally issued by AC. I also wanted to fly the 77w out of London...but AC has made a schedule change and now AC857 will be a 343...still the 77w on the return for the moment.
