    Iv not flown for over 5 years and so many changes Im so confused!! Im flying BA our of LHR so going to try and checkin on line 24hrs before if I can manage this do I just look for a BA stand with my flight number on at airport?? then they guide me through to security then I head for departures???

    • Hi Jennifer,

      Yes, if you don’t manage to check in online, look out for a check in desk with your flight number. There are signposts throughout the terminal to direct you to security and then onto to departures. All of the gates are signposted, too.

      Good Luck and have a safe flight!

    • Hi Veronica,

      If you have luggage going into the hold ( a large suitcase) you will drop this off when you check in, before you head through security, so it should be one of the first things you do. If you are just taking hand luggage, this must remain with you at all times, throughout your journey through the airport.
