Oneworld has recently changed policy and airlines including BA are no longer required to interline bags on separate tickets. In your case, Emirates isn't in oneworld and it's likely that BA wouldn't have checked-through your luggage anyway. You will have to exit customs and immigration, collect your bags, change terminals (if necessary) and check-in again. ...

The next BA aircraft to come into service will be the A350, estimated in service in 2018. This aircraft will supposedly feature a new club world (business class) offering of which there is much speculation going on over on flyertalk. For the A380 and B787, the first passenger 'training' flights were flown on short haul routes. I would imagine the same will ...

(1) Namaste, Berwyn's comment is very astute: on such a long flight, super-popular routes: it will be kind of "normal" if you miss a connection, and it won't matter at all, they'll just put you on another. Your flight is so long you won't even notice if you arrive the odd day after the supposed original arrival time (2) For Munich no problem (3) For LHR ...

Since the OP has already booked tickets, I don't think any of the information I'm adding here is going to help much, but just to set the record straight.

I've been experimenting with this and current operational conclusion is jump on the Piccadilly line straight to Heathrow. The Heathrow "express" is very good, but a long walk from departure to the termninals and a taxi or Tube from KC. By the time you've added up all the moving, I'm not sure it's an Express option after all.

The fact that you have purchased two separate tickets (as in two unrelated transactions and neither airline knows about the other flight) will make things substantially more difficult. If you bought the flights separately, you officially can't use the Heathrow Connections service and will have to exit the plane and walk to arrivals, go through UK ...

No, you will not go through border control (unless you need to collect and recheck your luggage). I've done this many times and there are buses, airside, connecting the terminals in Heathrow. Just follow the 'Flight Connections' signage. You will, however, go through a security screening at some point (in Terminal 4 if I recall correctly).
