comment 20 hour lay over time in LHR airport London, will they allow me to stay in airport for 20 hours
From the airport, just hop on the tube (underground trains) straight to central London. See this question for examples of how to do this.

comment Do I need to collect my luggage between connecting flights at LHR?
Could you rephrase more clearly? Are both flights with the same airline on the same ticket? Assume this is LHR - are both from the same terminal? Please edit your question to explain exactly what you're asking.

do you have a visa? I.e. will you be in transit only, or will you be able to clear customs?

comment What are the options for shipping luggage to the US from Vietnam?
Options? there's going to be literally dozens of carriers. Do you just want the cheapest, or most reliable, or fastest courier out there? Have you tried a google search or found anything so far, or was this your first stop?

comment How to book a multi-part flight with Turkish airlines?
@Ivan last I checked, if they can't beat your genuine price, you get a refund (I did last year when I'd found a good YVR->SFO price). However, they were amazing for saving me money other times. They give you the information on how to book it. Currently you then book it yourself, but they're looking at adding that functionality to the site in the future so that it can be done by them for you.
