I have a question about terminals and baggage drop at Heathrow. My daughter and I are flying out of Heathrow tomorrow, Sept 23; I am on a United flight to the US at 12:15 PM, and she is on a British Airways flight to Amsterdam at 2:45 PM. We both have bags to check. Unfortunately, she injured her foot while here in England, so she will require a wheelchair to deal with the long walks - she can walk a bit, but very slowly.
Will we both be able to check our bags in the same terminal? Or will she need to go to a separate terminal for British Airways? Of course we’d like to spend the last few hours together, but it may be that the wheelchair and luggage situation makes that too complicated.
And how does she request a wheelchair? Can she do so when she checks in, or does it need to be at the airport?
Thanks for any suggestions!
