GF and I have a flight from Montreal (YUL) to Rome (FCO) via Heathrow (LHR) Terminal 5. Both flights are on British Airways and were booked on the BA sites at the same time.
Arriving at LHR at Terminal 5 at 9:35am, leaving LHR from Terminal 5 at 10:40am.
I don't think I've had such a small delay between flights.
The Heathrow web (flight connection) site says it should take about 1 hour to make the connection, all in the same terminal.
Questions (maybe I will answer myself).
- Should We tell the flight attendants when checking in the luggage about the connection ?
- Is it possible (usual) to ask to get out of the plane before other people if connection time is short ?
- Is running allowed in the Terminal 5 halls ? :-)
(question is similar to Clearing Customs at Heathrow for a connecting domestic flight to Leeds Bradford)
Update 1: Currently waiting for my connecting flight out of LHR, transit took about 15 minutes from arriving at the gate , passing security and a small walk to gate b32.
Update 2: Landed in Rome with 1/2 of our luggage, GF got hers, mine was in the next flight from LHR; so, we just chilled by the #9 carrousel. waiting for the next flight !!!
All is well now.
