A frequent forum question; they are dependent upon the terminal you are connecting to/from.

  • AA, IB, JL, QF, RJ and MX operate from T3;
  • BA operates predominantly from T5 with some flights from T3;
  • AA*/BA codeshared flights have the same MCT of the operating carrier.

    LHR       From AA to       To AA from
   BA T3         1.00             1.00
   BA T5         1.30             1.30
   IB T3         1.10             1.10
   JL T3         1.15             1.25
   QF T3         1.10             1.10 
   RJ T3         1.10             1.10
