reliability of victoria and piccadilly lines around 6.15am

Can you please tell me how reliable the Victoria and Piccadilly lines are around 6.15am. I am travelling to Heathrow from Victoria. I need to check in by 7.45 am and a bit worried that I only will have around 20 mins from tube terminal at terminal 5 to check in, and that's with no delays factored in. Thanks for any advice

What date are you asking about, the tube can start later at weekends. Also any reason to be using the Victoria line as it is normal to suggest the District line to Hammersmith then the Piccadilly line to LHR.

My apologies, I meant the district and Piccadilly lines. I am traveling on a Wednesday and in June.

There is a train at 6:07 from Victoria which will get you to T5 by 7:00.

Just check for overnight engineering works nearer the day.

According to TFL last year more services ran on time (97.5%). However me personally I always allow more 'riggle room'. Better to be there an hour early, check in and relax while having breakfast.

Cannot emphasise that enough - tomorrow for example there aren't early Tubes to Heathrow

That would be because of the strike.
