Question About BA Check-in @ T5

Thu Jul 08, 2010 7:48 pm

Hey all,

Hopefully I can grab the attention of a BA employee.

I'm travelling from NCL to LHR on the special B744 flight BA are laying on 26th July. However, I'm travelling back from CDG to LHR on the 25th July, and will miss a considerable part of the online check-in. I'm worried that by the time I manage to check-in, the window seats will have gone.

If I was to turn up at LHR T5 the day before my flight was due to leave, and ask to be checked in for a NCL-LHR flight.. would they be able to do it from there?

Thanks.

Online check in opens 24hrs before the flight departs, so you would be able to check in before you fly LHR - NCL.

To answer your question however, no, as far as i know you cannot check in for a flight prior to actual check in opening (or else check in would not need an opening time   )

No, I mean.. I'm flying back into LHR the day before, so I'll be able to walk up to T5 after online check-in has opened (e.g, under 24 hours before departure).

Sorry, got confused
You can check in at the self service kiosk up to 24hrs (same as online check in) so if you land at LHR, just go upstairs from arrivals and check in; but you cannot check in at a physical check in desk untill they open (which is 3hrs before i beleive)

Thanks for your help.. I'll be sure to do that.

I'll defiantly be waiting at the machines for check-in to open!
