Emergency Passport

The better half and I are travelling on Monday on BA SYD-LHR (BA16 / BA12) and she will be flying on an Emergency Passport. Has anyone had experience with BA with this in the past? I imagine it's a fairly common occurrence and many flights to the UK will probably have at least one person on one. We'll get to the airport with plenty of time to spare just in case obviously but any tips or things to watch out for gratefully received.

Thanks!

No problems, even with passport control in the departure country. Unfortunately, you have to hand the passport in at LHR and are not allowed to keep the (bright pink) “passport” as a souvenir.

They are now an off white colour (maybe a Brexit thing )

We're returning to Australia so maybe we will be able to keep it for a bit longer as it clearly states it's valid for the return too

Does the emergency passport holder possess the necessary leave/status to enter the countries you intend to enter?

Of what country is she a citizen? The conditions of a passport replacing document ("emergency passport") vary by country of issuance.
