What should I know about British Airways missed connection practice?

Jump to last reply

I’m concerned about my connection at Heathrow. Our flight into Heathrow has been very late almost every day recently. We’re concerned that we won’t make our connection to Rome. I want to know what to expect from the airline in case that happens.

The flight is British Airways 286, which is scheduled to arrive at 13:30. The connecting flight is British Airways 554, and it’s scheduled to leave at 15:40. That’s all perfectly fine in theory. But many recent 286 flights have arrived too late to make it through security and everything else, even with all-carryon, even T5 to T5.

What is the airline’s obligation in such cases? What is British Airways’ usual practice? What if the one remaining flight is full? Do they give you a hotel room, a sandwich at Pret, or nothing at all?

I haven’t asked British Airways yet. I want to go in with some background.
