I'm Canadian, travelling from Toronto, Ontario to Bologna, Italy, connecting through LHR on 2 separate flight bookings but on the same airline (British Airways). I only have 1h35m between the flights. According to the Heathrow website, I can't go through the normal flight connection procedure if I have made my own bookings. Why is this?
If I am with the same airline, would I be able to be considered as a flight connection at Heathrow? I'm worried about the time to go through immigration, go landside, and then go through security again. What can I do in this situation?
I will have no checked luggage, both flights get to and from T5. I have considered checking into both in advance.
Thank you - much appreciated!!
