If need be, you can strap the two items together, and then cover them cling-flim / saran-wrap. Some airports provide wrapping services. This way it will be counted as one item, but you should check if the dimensions are within your allowance

There was a time when airline headsets had two prongs. These couldn't be used with your computer, phone or other headset-accepting devices. These days, most airline headsets have a single prong. If Thomas Cook provided you double-prong headsets, and the BA plane has single-prong jacks, then you won't be able to use them without an adapter. (While you can buy ...

For Lufthansa, the situation is complicated enough that they have a Free baggage calculator. For an Economy Class passenger with no elite status flying from New York to Berlin the allowance is 1x Carry-on, 1x Personal item, 1x checked baggage, with limitations on size and/or weight stated for each. You should enter your actual flight information but there ...

This varies a lot. It used to be that there were two concepts: piece concept: you are allowed a number of pieces of luggage, and there’s a max weight per piece. This was most common on flights to/from the US weight concept: you are allowed a total weight, and there isn’t any limit to the number of pieces. Nowadays it’s a lot murkier, and it really depends ...

On a single itinerary (ticket) with a "layover" your bag will always be checked through to the final destination . That's different from a "stopover", where the airport in the middle is a separate stop: Your bags will indeed be unloaded and you have to check in again and get new boarding passes for the second leg. Mainly the difference is determined by ...

You can find this information on the airline websites. There is no standard across the industry, it depends on the airline. And the ticket/fare type, and also the route, even a single airline this can vary by the route- traditionally airlines have had different rules on luggage for flights to/from North America than flights within Europe, for example. Many ...

Nearly in all cases you are given a piece allowance first and then it gets a weight limit. So, if your tickets shows 1 PC or 1 piece, then you have only 1 bag allowance for checked luggage and you cannot split it into two. This is generally the case for economy tickets with the airlines you mention and a good percentage of others. That being said, there is ...

You will be allowed to use them, whether they work depends on the plug on the headset and the actual plane you use. And on whether BA have an in-plane entertainment system. Although it is the norm that long-haul flights have it. When you know which route you will fly you can ask for one us to tell you whether it is likely that it will be usefull.

I frequently fly into or out of Japan, for which a number of airlines allow a greater luggage limit than for other destinations. Essentially, for tickets to or from Japan you will usually either be allowed two pieces at 23 kg each or one piece at 30 kg. If the former, it will always be mentioned on the ticket as 2 pieces (PCS). Applied to your situation, if ...

You had a few options, notably booking fully refundable tickets or buying a travel insurance policy. These alternatives oblige someone else to reimburse you if you find yourself unable to travel, such as due to travel restrictions resulting from an unexpected worldwide pandemic. As it is, you've chosen to bear that risk yourself, and the airline is not ...

Just speculating: you might got lucky here. Typically you pay the change fee and the difference in ticket price. Your flight is only 2 days out, so for a new ticket your are only eligible for fare classes that don't have a "must be booked XXX days in advance" condition. It's possible that your earlier booking date enabled you to maintain the initial lower ...

The answer to your question is dependent on the country of issue of your passport. Some individuals only need to apply for an ESTA and pay a $14 fee. Others would need to obtain a transit visa. If you required a full transit visa then British Airways should have you routed to Bahamas with another carrier if they did not have another direct flight. They ...

It depends what class you're traveling in and what status you have. If you're in First or Business (which BA brands as Club World), or you have any status in BA Executive Club, you can drop your bags from 5am on the day of the flight. Otherwise, bag drop opens 3 hours before departure, or 5am, whichever is later. BA also offers a bag collection service via ...

I spoke with BA over twitter. The code would relate to the rules and restrictions on the ticket. If booking via our website, these would be advised at the time of booking. Nearly all flights would have underlying fare types such as this, and as you point out, 'A' fares would usually be restricted First class fares. These would normally have fees ...

As fare codes, after the first letter, are airline specific and BA does not share the full list with the general public, you may never find the full explanation. You worked out much already by working out you need to stay a Saturday night. It is a long and complicated code but those are not unlikely, even though they are rare.
