Saying "you can change before...

Well it's BA's responsibility to be contactable to arrange ticket changes. They are the ones who offer changeable tickets, and who publish call centre opening times.

WDH is in another country. If BA tags the bags all the way through (which they almost surely won't on 2 PNRs) then no need to pick up bags.

Also, is there any sense in going to the airport and begging for a re-route on the 19:45 AA service?

Or, alternatively, a bad crew will offer something. Presumably, it's an easy way to improve post-flight survey scores. But really, you didn't pay for it, other passengers are (privately) unimpressed,...

It is a huge fine, but it's around 38% of the maximum penalty that could have been levied.
