comment Transit through Heathrow airport
Or if they weren't able to through-check their bags (eg connection was actually on 2 different tickets from airlines that don't play nicely with each other WRT interlining)

comment For the Qatar Airways Doha-Dubai shuttle service, when does Dubai checkin close?
AA have a big page listing their default timings and any exceptions to it for certain airports. BA list it for a few airports, for the rest they give it in "Manage My Booking". All seem to have a fixed time for a given airport. Just trying to find the Qatar one for my flight!

@BurhanKhalid Once I know when they officially close checkin, I can decide my chosen sleep/stress ratio and pick my arrival time. Until I know if it's 1 hour, 90 minutes, 3 hours, whatever, I can't!

All handy information, but doesn't quite answer the question of officially when Qatar close checkin...

comment Flying into London, overnight train to Edinburgh that evening, where to stow bags/shower?
The walk from Kings Cross St Pancras to Euston is only about 5 minutes, so if wanting to leave bags near Euston, I'd suggest Piccadilly Line Heathrow-Kings Cross, 5 minute walk, leave bags + shower at Euston. I don't think you gain anything by leaving bags or showing in Kings Cross or St Pancras

comment I am British citizen, my children hold a non-EU passport, Schengen visa to Spain was refused, what went wrong?
What kind of visa are they applying for? And will they be travelling alone, or with the British parent?

comment Short layover in Heathrow
Be aware that the BA computers that handle flight schedule changes are different to the BA computers that spot invalid connections. It'll take a few days for them to notice that the rescheduled flight is now too soon, and come up with a new plan that is more sensible. You can ring them in the mean time to speed the process up if you want to

Given the kids, I'd suggest you use someone like between 9 and 5 to book a day room at a hotel in London (not Heathrow!), shower there, let the kids have a nap if needed, then leave you bags with that hotel when you checkout before going sightseeing. Return later, grab bags, then have a much shorter trip to Euston. If that sounds of interest, I'll write it up as an answer

Have you ever tried emailing one of the ME3? Their on-board service is brilliant, but otherwise they're notoriously terrible at contact / offline customer services / etc... There's probably one rant a week about their customer service / lack of responses / unclear or incorrect responses on Loyalty Lobby, and many a day on FlyerTalk :(

But a big deal if the next one then misses your onward connection from Doha!

comment For the Qatar Airways Doha-Dubai shuttle service, when does Dubai checkin close?
Given the shuttle status, I'm wondering if they have some sort of fast-track / escort thing in place to ensure it's not a 3 hour queue, The qatar 1 hour thing is a vague thing not confirmed for all airports, if I could see that confirmed on their website I'd be happy, without that I'm worried I'll miss the DOH flight and hence my onward connection...
