UK Passenger Locator Form for way home?

I keep coming to the Genius Bar here on The Forum-

Will we need to complete the UK PLF when we return from Switzerland, via Heathrow, to the US?
Things to all!

the above only applies if you don't leave the airport.

Is it a stop in London or an overnight nearby or plane to plane continuous travel?

When we flew from LAX to LHR with a connecting flight to Paris, American Airlines wouldn't let us fly until we did the Passenger Locator Form even though we weren't leaving LHR Terminal 5. (How hard can it be to locate us in T5 for those five hours?) So we sat in the terminal at LAX trying to fill out the form using a laptop and iPhone's mobile hotspot. We managed to do it and then held the laptop up so the ticketing agent could read it.

It was a tense 45 minutes.

My advice --- do it whether you'll need it or not.
