I think you are cutting it very fine and I would avoid this if on separate tickets. I did a T3-T5 early morning transfer a few months back and between UK immigration, the bus transfer and re-clearing security it took a good 90 minutes by the time I was in the departure lounge at T5. I wasn’t hangin...Jump to post

Personal info request on transfer time at LHR (not having traversed terminals there in many years). Arriving on AA to LHR T3 @ 12.15 and departing from T2 with EI to SNN at 13.45. Is that 1.5 hours sufficient? Arrival time history for my particular AA flight looks excellent. No checked luggage. LHR ...Jump to post

Speculation about EI to DFW has generated occasional chatter since as least the Celtic tiger years of a decade ago. I'll believe it if and when EI officially makes an announcement. EI are expected to announce further route expansion in "early May", so I guess that could be any day now. DFW...Jump to post
