I'm hoping someone on the forum can give some advice.

There is enough time (but the queens can be horrendous for arriving at Heathrow) but have them checked through at check in (being first class helps). You might try again and say you were advised thus and so na they do you a favour or try Qantas.

I have found the problem to be with Heathrow full stop. Every member of my family have had issues with transfer of bags with connecting flights at Heathrow, to such an extent that we all now try to avoid this airport. It didn’t matter which airline we flew in with (although always transferring to BA domestic), no bags on arrival and we got the bags eventually 3-5 days later. One of the men at Manchester told us they were employed full time just to deliver late bags from Heathrow. So unless things have changed in the last four years good luck. Add to that the new rules and BA and I would be packing a spare set of underwear etc in cabin baggage. Good luck
Thanks all, appreciate the comments.
