comment Flying from US. Do I need to recheck my bags at Heathrow for a UK domestic flight?
@Malvolio Security != Immigration != Customs, they're all different. On a US -> UK domestic, you'd have to go through Immigration (can be long queues for non-EU, generally helpful) and Security (can be long queues, often deliberately slow and useless), but not customs (who you almost never see or interact with, but who sometimes spring out from their hidden office and stop someone they want a chat with)

US != UK. Arriving in the USA and transferring to a US domestic flight, you must collect bags, clear customs and re-check. Arriving in the UK the main thing they care about is immigration. As stated in the answer, they'll clear immigration in London at their departure terminal if connecting. If you've nothing to declare, and you don't look dodgy, customs is something you walk through without stopping, unlike in America!

comment Visa rejection twice
Is getting someone to translate your appeal letter into French an option? And did you include enough evidence of ties to India to reassure the French that you really would leave at the end of your trip?

Do you have a source for these lower prices? It would be good to confirm it one way or the other!

comment Is it possible to downgrade a business/first class flight to economy without the ticket purchaser knowing?
@JoeBlow You really ought to eat in first if you can, food can be amazing. See this blog post for an example of what the food can be like, if you find yourself there. (BA's isn't quite as good, but isn't bad)

How long is your Canadian visa valid for? IIRC the rules on leaving the US for a nearby country and returning vs the 90 days differ for people who do and don't live in a nearby country (FSVO live in....)
