comment Through checking bags on BA1 - Do you have to collect and re-check?
Some people on today's flight tried the "telling the groundstaff" option, and they think it worked. I opted for collect + stash duty free + re-check, but the AA staff will look at you like you're from Mars when you turn up in T8 with a bag with through-checked luggage tags on it...

@MichaelHampton Which is great in theory, but in practice I've almost never seen them at the US airport terminals I've flown into :(

One might also say, given that UK citizens aren't allowed to enrol for Global Entry, that your friend should be forced to stand in a boring queue each time just like all UK citizens heading westwards are forced to, and they need to lobby their elected representatives to get that fixed! ;-)

Fly into Ireland, then fly from Ireland to Heathrow, where you'd exit through Customs but bypass Immigration?

comment Should I use an online broker to buy travel medical insurance or Should I buy from the insurance company website?
Do you have a source for legally there being no travel insurance discounts? I find it unlikely that there are no countries anywhere in the world without them...

comment Travel insurance with a pre-existing condition
There are quite a few specialist travel insurance providers who do cover pre-existing conditions, but they generally charge quite high fees based on which pre-existing conditions you want them to cover

comment How can I change my FF number on Iberia/British Airways to American Airlines?
Try using the Finnair website's Manage My Booking, that often lets you change the FF details on other OneWorld airline bookings

comment How much cash should I give my daughter for month long Japan trip?
Sending your daughter with a large pile of cash may not be the best option. A low-FX card might be a better bet, from which she could withdraw money + spend as needed

comment Can an American get a UK Transit Visa on Arrival?
Buying a different ticket which permits a short airside transit would seem the easier fix! But I'm guessing there's a reason why they've bought such a complicated set of tickets with a landside transit through a country they know they have issues entering...

comment Buying a flight ticket from a different country
Do you mean "can I ring up a Dutch travel agent, give them my Israeli credit card and billing details, and have them ticket it from Dutch fare availability"? Or do you mean "can I ring up / use an Israeli website / travel agent, and have them sell me from Dutch availability?"

comment Recourse to SNCF after missing ferry due to delayed train
Was it a through SNCF ticket for train+ferry? Or otherwise, do you have any travel insurance? Typically you need to claim on your travel insurance for delays causing missed connections between different tickets

comment Transit Time two hours at Chicago
@CGCampbell If it's one ticket, then if the OP misses the connection due to delays then they'll just be rebooked on a later flight. If it's two different tickets, then if they missed the first they may well have to pay to rebook. That than changes what "enough" time is

comment Padang Bai to Gili Trawangan by boat?
Rome2Rio also has bookmarkable URLs, so you should be able to give the OP a direct link for their journey and some advice!
