Bag Drop Query

Hi guys, long time lurker, first time poster.
Heading to BOM on BA0199 tomorrow evening with the wife and kids. Will be heading in with them on the HEX.
Will also be dropping my parents off for the morning flight tomorrow via car, now bag drop opens at 5 am so I'm wondering whether I can lighten my load so to speak and drop off one or two bags in the morning instead of lugging 4 suitcases, hand luggage, car seat and pushchair with me via train later on?

Welcome to flyertalk and the BA forum!

Do you have OW status ( ie BA gold or silver) or are travelling in CW or First?

If so you can drop your bags at anytime during the day ( ie in the morning for an evening flight)

If not then the standard bag drop times ( 3 hours) will apply.

Bag drop is open from 05:00 on the day of departure for all lounge-eligible passengers (First/Club World/Club Europe/Business UK/Emerald-Gold/Sapphire-Silver) plus Ruby-Bronze.

If you don't have lounge access or Ruby-Bronze status, bag drop is open from 3 hours before departure.
