Thank you to
all contributors to the forum.
appreciate some advice re flight connection at LHR and trying to access the QF
lounge in T3.
We will be
travelling to and from London in Business in July 2019, using QF. We are having
a separate side trip to Iceland using IcelandAir. On our return from KEF to LHR
we arrive at LHR T2 at 11:45am on FI450. This flight is fixed and not easy to
check in at T3 does not open until 5:15pm. Therefore, we cannot access the airside
QF lounge even though it is open from 08:00am. So what to do?
spoken to Qantas and they seem not to have any desk where we could check in
even as Business class passengers.
If we have
luggage we need to go through customs and “enter” the UK only to find we can’t
check-in for 5 hours or so. Not looking forward to sitting in T3 departure hall
waiting for the desk to open. (We had this happen in LAX as well on a trip from
If we just
had carryon luggage can we stay airside and get a flight connection from T2 to
we may need a boarding pass.
We can do
online check-in but will we get a boarding pass acceptable to Flight
Connections in LHR be able to issue a boarding pass.?
appreciate any suggestions or advice from contributors.

We truly are a lucky batch of people... put a request on here and the are always a batch of suggestions..and the ones on here after this request are first class... mine would be to go to Kings Cross.. then a short walk to the Library.. a copy of the Magna Cartra is there etc..
Nevertheless.. get out of Heathrow and enjoy.

I actually wanted to get to lounge as we'll have an early start from KEF.
Been to London a fair bit so not as attractive as before perhaps. However as Samuel Johnston said "If a man has tired of London he is tired of life". Should be something of interest there.
Windsor looks like a good option.
If it is the lounge I want:
Seems like I might be able to do a connection T3-T2 assuming I can get a boarding pass on line from QF and have carryon.
I'm checking with Iceland Air if they can do an interline baggage check thru FI to QF if I have checked in baggage. Not hopeful but have yet to receive a response.
I've also noticed that most of QF's competitors have automated checkin and baggage drop at LHR and wonder why QF has not moved into the modern age.
Thank you again to contributors
