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

comment Luggage Transfer From Karachi to Brunei
At Dubai airport, Terminals 1 and 3 are just different ends of the same building, so you walk between them. There's some info on that in this question here

comment Time needed for transfer in Newark (US airport), domestic to international
One ticket or two? Same airlines or different? Definitely flying USA -> Sweden, or do you need to know about the other direction too?

comment Qatar - Doha - Lounge Options
Do you have status with any of the airlines you're travelling with? How about a priority pass / lounge angel card?

comment Can I collect post at / near Heathrow airport (on a Saturday)?
Exactly! An hour's inconvenience is fine for me, and fine for a hypothetical future visitor without a handy friend/colleague to do a drop-off. Several hours is out for me, and wouldn't be available for many people in transit via Heathrow

comment Can I collect post at / near Heathrow airport (on a Saturday)?
At 1.5 hours each way (30 minutes into London, 30 minutes to cross London, 30 minutes out to Heathrow), plus waiting time, it's a non-trivial favour to owe someone for giving up that much of their Saturday + spending that much on public transport!

comment Is an Oyster card worth it for 3 days?
Oyster only supports daily price capping. Contactless supports daily and weekly price capping, which has caused some controversy as it means that it is in some cases cheaper than oyster, which was always promised to be the cheapest
