comment How to upgrade my Icelandair ticket?
Are you looking to upgrade with cash or with miles (and if so which)? And any reason why you didn't do the upgrade at the time of the booking?

comment Can we switch terminals at Heathrow (LHR) for shopping only?
T1 and T2 are joined, so you can walk freely between them, but it's a bit of a trek. That'll end in not very long when the last airline leaves T1 and they start knocking much of it down. T2 and T3 are near each other, but not joined.

comment Can we switch terminals at Heathrow (LHR) for shopping only?
Note that only some non-BA flights have moved to T2, others (eg Virgin, Emirates) remain in T3. You need to check the Heathrow website if you're not sure which airlines are in T2 now, and which aren't!

comment Is there a store which sells foldable bicycle in Frankfurt?
I'd have guessed that many higher end bike shops would, did you try googling for the name of the kind of foldable bike you want (eg Brompton) and Frankfurt?

comment Places in US cities to sleep/kill time after a redeye?
Have you checked for a day use rate at hotels near the airport? Many of the hotel portals will let you search for those by entering a checkin and checkout of the same day

comment Quick way to exit King's Cross tube station?
I go through there at rush hour about once a week, and never have to wait very long at the barriers I described. Being in the right carriage to head straight up the stairs can help though

comment Is my luggage automatically transferred from British Airways to Aer Lingus (Brussels>LHR>Cork)?
Would you be booking a single ticket with BA to Cork from Brussels? Or would you be booking one leg with BA, one let with Aer Lingus?

comment Traveling with computer parts and expensive monitor to Dublin
Do you have to fly? Eurostar to London then a (cheap!) Rail+Sail ticket onward to Dublin would let you keep them with you at all times. Might not be very much more money than a flight with baggage allowance, though it would be slower

comment Repeated close visits on US Visa Waiver Programme
I once entered the US twice in 14 days, having been back to Europe in between! No problems re-entering, but I seem to recall getting a look best described as "confused pity" from the immigration guy when he saw how recently I'd last entered + I'd just come off a flight from the UK...

I don't know EWR, but this question on the lack of international transit in the USA should cover most in general

comment Changing planes at Newark Airport
When connecting through the USA, it is normal for bags to be tagged through, but that they get spat out for collection in the first USA airport. You then clear US customs with them, and hand them over to the airline post-customs for onward travel
