Subject: Connecting in Heathrow
I am traveling from Chicago on British Airways to Heathrow on December 29th arriving at 10:30AM. I have another flight to Rome at 12:15PM on Alitalia. Since I have separate tickets for these flights, I'm concerned about making my connection. Will British Airways check my bag on to Rome if I have a ticket for that flight to show them prior to departing for London? Will I have time to retrieve my bag from British Airways and get it checked in with Alitalia? I arrive in terminal 4 and leave for Rome from Terminal 2. I've been told it takes about 15 minutes to transfer between terminals. Any suggestions?
