Hi,

I have 2 separate PNR's, Sydney-Heathrow on QF1, the Heathrow- Manchester on BA metal, will I be able to check my bags through to Manchester in Sydney and collect boarding cards for both flights?

Thanks in advance,

Rob

Super,

Does anyone know what would happen if the QF flight is late, Im currently scheduled to land in LHR 6:45 and the BA flight isn't until 9:00am, so I'm meeting the minimum 90min transfer time, but in t eh event of QF being late, because they are both one world would I get moved onto the next BA flight automatically?

Ive ready tehat one world monitor for missed connections, but asking BA, they can't seem to give me an answer.

Cheers

Rob

Probably not on two separate tickets, they're not obliged to. However, AA does this and they may be sympathetic.

If it's on 2 tickets, the oneworld express connections team at LHR won't know you're making a connection, so they won't be watching it for any issues.

I would contact both BA and QF and advise them of the connection. What real value it has I don't know but it certainly cannot hurt and may help if there is a delay. As mentioned previously it helps with AA but as QF and BA appear to have fallen out of love in recent times, who really knows if it will help here.

Does this team even exist, I've read on the Oneworld site that this team exists at SYD, but never seen them?

It does at LHR as recently I was greeted at the aircraft door of my EK (QF coded) flight upon landing at LHR to personally escort me to the terminal transfer on a 90min connection to a BA flight. I can assure you EK would not have arranged this courtesy.

The flights were on the same PNR so as Himeno says if yours are not they probably are not aware of your connection and won't be ready to assist.

They are at LHR, MAD, JFK, MIA, DFW, ORD, LAX, NRT and SYD. You would never see them unless they have reason to flag a your connection as an issue.
CX does the same thing at HKG, but that's just a CX thing, not oneworld.

If he already has a boarding pass for the BA flight (issued by QF in SYD) - yes, they'll know.

You'll be fine - I do this with QF onto AA flights all the time

(1) Do you have a points upgrade requested on QF flights?*

(2) If not then ring Qantas and ask for a "Ghost Segment" sometimes known as an "Information Segment" to be added to the booking.

(3) If you are late you simply go to nearest BA transfer desk in LHR and ask them to help

(4) On here everyone will jump up and down about 2 separate booking (or PNRs) but don't worry airlines like to help generally.

* If there are points upgrades requested I recommend not doing this as playing with reservations by adding ghost segments etc seems to corrupt and confuse the upgrade program which QF runs.

Just because it works with AA is no guarantee it will work with BA, BA do not have a published policy like AA do for misconnects involving partner feeders on separate PNRs.

Thanks for the responses, Ive spoken to Qantas to couldn't really help, BA the same,

If Qantas can issue my boarding pass for the BA flight in Sydney, then it should register somewhere that I'll be coming through via a connecting flight.. who knows..?

I'll post back my experience should QF1 be delayed.

Thanks again

Adding ghost segments also breaks OLCI...
