At a convenient location along the route change from the 285 bus to the 490 bus. These buses share a route for several miles, so there are countless places you can change between them, with the last being Hatton Cross Station. The 490 goes to Terminal 5, but not before it stops in Terminal 4. Depending on exactly which bus you end up catching, this will ...

You can do this by taking the N9 bus to Heathrow Terminal 5 and then taking the 482/490 bus. This will take around 20-30 minutes depending on bus times and take you directly to Terminal 4. The buses run quite regularly, around every 10 minutes. TFL buses in the Heathrow area are also free.

I've seen contracted staff at Air China outstations being pickier, but if you're departing from Beijing you'll be fine. ". I've travelled with two carry-on items on Air China. They certainly allow a jacket and a ...

I have used the 111 before and it is pretty reliable. Whenever I had to depend on it, it came on time but it’s still good to have a second option. As to why the 105 doesn’t go to Heathrow Central Bus Station, I’m not sure but I can confirm it doesn’t go all the way. Maybe not enough bus stands or stops there/no place for it to park? As to an alternative, ...

Given your UK immigration history, yes, you might be questioned. It is difficult to fully understand your history (you were denied entry in 2009 and later received a 10 year ban in 2012 for some unspecified reason which was then supposedly overturned in 2018), but it's clear that it is complex and may require more scrutiny than can be sorted out quickly at ...

If (a) your flights are booked as one booking, (b) you're not transiting overnight, and (c) your luggage is checked through to the USA, then you shouldn't have to go through UK immigration at all, so it's very unlikely you'll even see a UK immigration officer. Your airline will check that you're eligible to transit through the UK (a US visa means you should ...
