comment Transferring between British Airlines and Delta at LHR - T5 to T3 - is 2h30 sufficient?
In my experience, an ePassport at T5 doesn't often speed things up (often the queue can be longer than that for those with older EU passports, and processing each person is typically not as rapid). But non-EU passport lanes generally are longer, yes, and presumably take longer to process, too.

comment Turkish Airlines Baggage Allowance
I think it's quite likely that 40kg = 2 x bags with a max of 20kg each. In my experience many airlines consider bags over 32kg to be overweight and may refuse to carry them entirely for health and safety reasons: britishairways.com/en-gb/information/baggage-essentials/…

Hi - thanks for your answer. Generally linking to an article is discouraged here without some summary of the content in your answer. This helps combat linkrot. Can you edit some content into your answer, please?

comment Travelling between the UK and Norway as an Australian citizen on a standard holiday visa
Have you given up your UK passport? AFAIK, Australia allows for dual citizenship (citizenship.gov.au/current/dual_citizenship)
