"17.5 x 12.9 x 30.9 Inches" converted to centimeters is "44.5 x 32.8 x 78.5" which matches exactly the size shown on the pages you've ...

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 ...

The flight is technically valid and you will be having the visas required. Transit Visa is not needed anyway for passengers having a canadian visa. However, these are the risks.
