Star Alliance has lounges on the arrival level at Heathrow Terminal 2. I don't know the details of your lounge access, but I don't see any reason why you shouldn't be able to use them. Of course you will still need to transfer to T3 at a reasonable time.
I don't believe so, no, unless you have arrivals lounge access. When you get off your flight in Terminal 2, you'll be in the arrivals passenger flow. Unlike a domestic US arrival for example, you don't just get dumped out into the terminal, but into a secure area. You'll then follow the Purple Flight Connections signs, which for most of the way will be the ...
If you have a valid US visa, you are exempt from UK transit visa requirements. You will need a valid, unexpired US H-1 visa to enter the US in H-1 status; approved I-539 and/or I-129 is not sufficient.
Personally, I think you can do this with no bags with a 95% success rate ... but what is your plan if you fail? Are you willing to take that risk if you might have to buy a new walk-up ticket? KQ (Kenya Airways) arrives at Terminal 4 so you have a terminal change to Terminal 3 for your US Airways flight. KQ might through-check your luggage, but I would not ...
The three flights have been purchased as one ticket. Your bags will be checked through to your final destination (Ottawa). For informational purposes, if you enter a port in Canada that is not your final destination in Canada, you would have to clear customs at the first point of entry in Canada. In your case, Ottawa is your first port of entry in to Canada ...
Yes, from many places in the south west it's both cheaper and more convenient. There is a coach from Reading station to Heathrow. If you search the national rail planner for a journey from somewhere in the west (e.g. Bristol) to LHR it will generally recommend this as being both quicker and cheaper than taking the train in to London and back. A taxi would ...
To go as smoothly as possible, I would book into one of the hotels close to Heathrow that has a regular bus to/from the airport. Then after spending time in central London, I would travel to Heathrow on the tube after 8pm, so you get a seat. Then get the bus to the hotel and the bus back from the hotel the next day. (The last tube is late enough to ...
British Airways and US Airways are both part of the OneWorld alliance. As such, even if you were on two tickets, you'd be able to check your bags through. As it's all on one ticket, you will definitely be able to check them through (and that'll be the default). You'll hand over your bags in Rome, and won't see them again until Charlotte. (Check the baggage ...
Base on this post, BA has interline baggage agreements with UA and you mae 2 flights in 1 reserve. So you don't have to recheck baggage.
The fastest way is going from King's Cross St Pancras tube station to Paddington tube station first via Hammersmith & City line or Circle line/Circle line and then interchange to the Heathrow Express at Paddington rail station. The trip takes about 30-35mins, plus 5-10 mins from the rail station to terminal 2 and <20mins waiting time (<5mins for ...
The fastest way is probably to get a taxi. The journey time is 44 mins (though probably a bit more allowing for traffic), but there will be very short wait times at Kings Cross and it will drop you at the door of your Heathrow terminal. The cost is about 75 pounds, which split four ways is not bad: for four adults that is actually cheaper than the Heathrow ...
Use the Tube? Take the Piccadilly line to Heathrow Terminals 1, 2, 3 station. The trip takes about an hour and there is service every 10 minutes or so all day.
