British Airways is now publicising the fact that you can check in your bags at Heathrow on the day before you fly.
Take a look at this page of ba.com.
Whilst it has only just been added to the website, it appears that this has been quietly offered since last Autumn to anyone who turned up and asked. British Airways has now decided to make it an official part of its service.
Here are the times it is available, plus times for Gatwick and Edinburgh where it has been offered for a while:
Heathrow Terminal 5 – check-in between 16.00 and 22.00 for flights departing before 13.00 the next day
Heathrow Terminal 3 – service not available
Gatwick South – check-in between 16.00 and 22.00 for flights departing before 13.00 the next day
Edinburgh – check-in between 04.00 and 20.00 (18.00 on Saturdays) for flights departing before 09.30 the next day
It is not available at any other airport at present. Whether it rolls out further will depend partly on take-up but also on the ability of the airport to handle luggage which is checked in early.
