Bit of a moment at work today when a colleague proudly told me he'd managed to book substantially the same route in economy with a bonkers mixture of Norwegian, United and AA for "only 1000". I couldn't bring myself to tell him.
Sealink, dylanks and madfish like this.

Hi all after some help if possible.

Im off to Phoenix next weekend as a TP run / holiday and as such the golf clubs are travelling with.
Im flying to OTP on the Thursday in prep for the trip to begin Friday morning. Now my question is this, I will be checking the clubs in (and fully expecting them not to make the Saturday morning connection in LHR as it’s only 70 mins) but was wondering can I leave them at the bag storage in LHR Thursday and collect and bag drop on Friday during my 6hr layover before going onto HEL?
the trip is as follows; OTP-LHR-HEL on Friday 30th. HEL-LHR-JFK-PHX on Saturday 31st.

Thanks in advance

chris

You should be able to, but this assumes you have no delay on your flight to collect.

Is your flight to JFK with BA from T5 or AA from T3? Remember that OTP/LHR is T5 and LHR/HEL is T3. Just in case that makes a difference.

BTW you are not the only one on LHR/OTP on Thursday and Friday.

Feel free to post your flights if you wish.

Is your flight to JFK with BA from T5 or AA from T3? Remember that OTP/LHR is T5 and LHR/HEL is T3. Just in case that makes a difference.

BTW you are not the only one on LHR/OTP on Thursday and Friday.

Feel free to post your flights if you wish.
Hi Madfish,

I plan to collect between the OTP and HEL flights on Friday as i have 6hrs.
Saturday would be out of the questions as I only have an hour.

And my flights are as follows:
Friday 30th; OTP-LHR BA885
Friday 30th; LHR-HEL AY1336
Saturday 31st; HEL-LHR AY1331
Saturday 31st; LHR-JFK AA101
Saturday 31st; JFK-PHX AA1587
Friday 6th; PHX-JFK AA2789
Friday 6th; JFK-LHR BA116
Saturday 7th; LHR-HEL AY1332
Saturday 7th; HEL-LON BA799
Sunday 8th; LON-OTP BA886 (planning to drop)

help

Help help help - just about to complete the first leg of this run which is from OTP to LHR which is running 2-3 hours behind schedule (sat on runway in Bucharest about to take off) - resulting in missing the connecting flight to HEL. Which would also result in missing tomorrow’s flight back to london. What options do I have? Many thanks in advance for your help!!

If you're on one ticket you'll be fine. They'll sort you out on arrival.

Nice night in the Sofitel and no need for a HEL shuffle

Guys,

I used the JFK-PHX-JFK AA flight cancellations, to re-hang my itinerary a little (essentially just to get in and out of LHR quicker, so I can make the earlier JFK-PHX flight and get to PHX at 19:19 instead of 22:59). I also tried to tighten up the LHR-HEL-LHR 'shuffle' so I could take the morning OTP-LHR flight back on Tue 26-Aug and use one less day's holiday ... but presently no joy as BA want GBP280 to change the fare. I may just turn up to the airport early and see if they will put me on the morning flight, if not I will kick around Bucharest for the day before meeting @EMB195, @IFE Wizard, @madfish, @onobond and @our_kid in the Departure Gate for the 18:00 OTP-LHR flight after they complete their rapid LHR-OTP-LHR transit.

@taylorj6 keep an eye for the morning flight from OTP. I also suggest you look at the info regarding same day changes. As long as you have not checked in you should hopefully be able to switch to the earlier flight come midnight on that day.

@schmidlin88 now that you have landed at T5 have you been able to resolve the problem yet? If so, what was the outcome?

Finally changed my flights for the schedule changes. Wiki updated. First time I've had to do that and very painless. Arriving into PHX two hours later than booked (at 2247) and waking up 90 mins earlier (for 6am flight) wasn't really going to fly...

Managed to lose some time at JFK T7 for some more time at LAX TBIT, which I'd take any day of the week!

Edit: spoke too soon. AA just called back to say my 1hr58m JFK T8-T7 connection is invalid (I was a bit surprised they'd let me book it). Pretty sure it's doable twice in that time, but there you go. Wiki updated again for the later 930pm JFK departure.
