Q: +1 requested the two weeks extension period. BAEC approved the request and confirmed that she'd requalify for another year. Nearly a month later, the account still doesn't reflect the renewal....

The difference is that EU/EEA lines and particularly the e-gates have been consistently quick whereas waiting times in the non-fast-track lines for non-EU/EEA passports can be unpredictable. YMMV.

I haven't been to the Burberry at Heathrow but airside shops tend to be as expensive or only marginally cheaper than their downtown siblings. Most stores won't deduce the VAT and you can't claim back...

1) Why?
2) Not sure where you get the 1.75 hrs. Per my calculations, you have no more than 1.25 hrs in Heathrow (Gate is scheduled to close 20 minutes prior to STD). If departing from T5, then...

It was a straightforward question but one that does not make too much sense. Euros are somewhat useless in old Blighty and there are only few reasons to get euros while in London (e.g. flying out to...

This isn't reflected in your original post which suggested that visa waivers, in general, "cost nothing".

Moreover, I can't make too much sense of your "passport may be flagged as having...

I'd withdraw euros in an euro country rather than buying them in London. There's no use for euros in the UK and ATMs are everywhere.

Agree. 4 hrs in DOH are plenty. You'll be able to shower, have a snack and to wander around the terminal. Beyond 4 hrs, it's just going to be boring.

Flying for leisure only and collecting miles/status isn't mutually exclusive. Particularly if you're flying in J/F anyway, it can still make sense to collect miles. A QR return J yields enough Avios...
