British Airways Edinburgh-Heathrow-Philadelphia Layover & Baggage question

Jump to last reply

My sister and brother-in-law will be flying home on British Airways this spring, leaving Edinburgh and flying to Philadelphia, with a short layover in Heathrow. The reservations were made a few months ago, but they've been receiving emails about the times changing, so now they have 65 minutes from landing in Heathrow before catching their flight to Philadelphia.

Is an hour long enough, since they are flying on the same airline, but changing planes? Also, my brother-in-law called British Airways to ask if their luggage would need to be rechecked at Heathrow or if it would be loaded in Edinburgh and sent straight through, and he was told that would be at the discretion of the gate agent. That part, in particular, sounds rather odd to me.

Thanks!
