Hi I have a couple of questions regarding British Airways and Heathrow. I will be flying from Heathrow for the first time on 30th March to Prague with BA. I will be flying from terminal 3. My coach gets to Heathrow for 2.30am and my flight leaves at 7.15am so I am just going to sit in the terminal and probably just look at maps and things for my destination, what I was wondering is what time does check in/bag drop desks for flights around my time normally open? Is there anywhere within Terminal 3 departures you can get a cheapish cooked breakfast?
Also I was wondering how do you know what gate you will be leaving from as whenever I have been in airports the gate number has never been on the screen until the gate opens, and I tend to get there very fast but there is always loads of people already in the line, looking like they have been there a while? I will be travelling alone so any general tips about BA or Heathrow T3 would be much appreciated.
Also my coach drops me at the central bus station will T3 be a easy walking distance from there with two suitcases? And also is Heathrow deserted at that time of the morning or do you generally get other people there aswell? I don't want to be alone!
