I plan to travel from Lyon (France) to Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) with a transit stop at London Heathrow (UK).
The former flight is from Lyon Saint-Exupery (LYS) to London Heathrow (LHR) with British Airways (Flight Code : BA 365).
The latter, after 3 hours and 10 minutes of transit, is from London Heathrow (LHR) to Kuala-Lumpur (KUL) with Malaysia Airlines (Flight Code : MH 3).
My question is simple : Do I need to recheck-in and check (take it and register again) my bags at London Heathrow (LHR) or is it managed by the company or the airport so I don't have to worry about that ?
What I know :
- British Airways and Malaysia Airlines are members of the same alliance since Malaysia Airlines joined it in 2013 (OneWorld)
- I have to change from Terminal 3 to Terminal 4 at London Heathrow (LHR)
- There is no code share. Each flight has its own flight code (BA365 for British and MH3 for Malaysian).
