Flying from LHR to DXB arriving at 2345 on BA (terminal 1). Bought a separate ticket (separate PNR) on EK departing at 0215 from T3. I understand that BA will not interline my baggage through to EK so I must reclaim my checked baggage upon arrival at T1 then proceed to check in with EK.
Is this even remotely possible with a 2 1/2 hour connection at DXB? Then same question in reverse a few days later with a 3 hour connection, although I have heard that EK may interline bags to a BA connection.
