London mileage run turn

I'm sure this has been covered elsewhere, but I can't find it.

I am considering booking SFO-MIA-JFK-LHR-MIA-SFO, with a "connection" at LHR from 9:35 AM to 11:25 AM on a Sunday morning in February.

What is involved in doing an immediate turn on AA at LHR? Can I have my partner check me in on-line for LHR-MIA, while I am in the air from JFK? If so, what is the cut off time for me to present my passport at LHR? Where must I present it?

For you experienced LHR flyers, is this a bad idea? What are the potential consequences of missing my "connection"?

Wow, mod, you are brilliant (and fast)!

No wonder I couldn't find it, LHR and MR are too short for the search function.

Moderator brilliance aside, I would still appreciate specific answers to my questions...

It's doable assuming your flight from Miami is on time. Instead of going thru immigration you just use the Flight Connections Center and get your boarding passes from AA there (or have them issued in JFK) and then go thru security to come back into Terminal 3. I know you have to check-in at least an hour before your flight at LHR but am not sure if it's any different if your going through the Connections Center. You can do all of that in less than an hour and potentially have time to have a quick breakfast in the BA First Lounge.

Yup no problem if the flight into LHR is on time; walk to Flight Connections and go through Security to get back into T3, instead of getting on a bus to another terminal. That Security line has taken me anywhere from 1 minute to 25 minutes to get through, so that's your biggest variable. Since you're EXP, just go the the AC and check in there.
