comment Flying from US. Do I need to recheck my bags at Heathrow for a UK domestic flight?
It's handy though, as you don't have to collect your bags / clear customs / re-check them, as places like the US tediously make you...

@Karlson Not here you wouldn't, on one ticket your bags are checked through, and you clear customs on arrival in Scotland (your bag tags are colour coded to indicate you need to do that). Unlike the American system, where you do everything on first port of arrival, here (for a through ticket) you'd clear immigration at Heathrow, but customs at the final spot. (If flying USA -> Schengen -> UK, as an example, you'd clear both together in the UK, as the UK isn't Schengen)

comment What company to use for a flight Paris-Dublin?
Exactly how heavy will your luggage be? And can you perhaps split it into several bags to avoid the overweight fee?

comment Heathrow Overnight Layover - claim and recheck luggage? go through immigration?
BA should be fine to check it through for you, as it's all one ticket and the layover is under a day. Whether you want them to is a different matter - depends if you'll want things from your bags on the layover!

I'm fairly sure you won't be flying with Cathay between Stockholm and London, most likely it'll be BA. Can you check?

@Alex If it's one itinerary, and the airlines have interlining (eg are in the same alliance), then that'll be largely the same as if it were all one ticket. If they're totally different (eg BA onto Virgin) then that changes things

@pnuts BA isn't always the same terminal, though normally is, but it doesn't make any difference at Heathrow. The thing that does is if it's a through ticket (clear immigration + security but not customs via the Flight Connections process) or two ticket (clear immigration, get back, clear customs, landside transfer, re-check)

Is it all on one ticket, or two tickets? That'll make a big difference

comment Can I return a rental car early?
This isn't always true - it is possible to get a pre-paid rate at many places in the US (+overseas), where you'd pay in advance. It's also possible (though rare) to find a longer rate that is cheaper than a shorter one (eg special sale for a week's rental), where if you give the car back early they may (note may, not always will) re-price based on how long you had it, and charge you more!

comment Best way, and how much time to allow, from Heathrow Airport to Waterloo Station?
For trains to Corbridge from London, you need Kings Cross station, which has trains basically every 30 minutes in the day, 1 change

comment Flying into one airport and leaving from another
It all depends on cheap fare availability and rules. Try looking for an "open jaw" return though, eg UK to East coast, back from West coast, with a different ticket for the cross-country leg

comment Train passport control from London to Paris
@DumbCoder Not since they agreed to herd all Brussels to Lille passengers into only carriage 18 you won't, not unless they loose someone from there. Thankfully, the extra border check in London for Brussels/Lille is now a very rare occurrence (and I speak from experience!)

comment Pricing and booking mixed-class fares, with economy & premium economy combined?
Though personally, any time I need to book something with complicated fare class restrictions (eg some legs in one class, some in others), I find it simplest to phone up a travel agent and book with them!
