comment Send 1 overweight suitcase instead of 2 underweight?
In most cases, no. They might allow the overweight one without charging extra if it's only very minimally overweight, but in most cases, they'd let it through even if you brought two bags.

comment If a baby is born on an international flight over international waters, what nationality are they?
I can't think of any off the top of my head, but I couldn't find a source a list of countries with a jus sanguinis system (or an assertion that all countries have a jus sanguinis system), so I didn't want to make a definitive statement on that.

comment If a baby is born mid-flight, what happens visa-wise for them when they land in a foreign country, sans-passport?
@jpatokal I'm sure they have a procedure for a medical emergency which likely involves sending someone to the hospital with the patient, but that doesn't solve the problem of the baby not having papers.

I wouldn't be too surprised by the immigration officials not having a procedure for this (and not wanting to deport the baby), and just pretending (at least officially) that the baby was born after the parents had cleared immigration, in which case, they don't have to do anything.

comment Does “last check in time” apply for connecting flights?
@Jimmy Yes, you will be able to collect your boarding pass at Heathrow (but at all times, follow the "Flight Connections" signs; your airline will have a desk airside that you will pass if you follow these signs—going landside will very likely make you late). Also, don't worry too much about missing your flight—since you're on one ticket, the airline will get you to your final destination if your first flight gets in late and you can't transit in time.

comment Any way to find out what US Customs & Border Protection has in their database?
I don't believe there's any way to get at why you're being selected, but DHS's Redress program should fix it in the future (assuming it's just a name issue and you're not actually the person they're concerned about).
