Connection in LHR

Hi! I am planing to book a trip from São Paulo to barcelona , I choose the sky scanner to help me. The site finds a good ticket on chepOair.com, the problem is that there is a connection of 90 minutes in London - LHR. Is that enough time? And if I loose de connection to barcelona the company (TAM - GRU TO LHR // AND BA LHR TO BCN BOTH MEMBERS OF ONE WORLD) give me another ticket for free?

If you are on one ticket they should. However, Cheapoair are a consolidator and sell many heavily restricted tickets that come with many ties. I wouldn't purchase this ticket through Cheapoair, book directly through the airline.

Get a coffee,sit down, type 'Cheapoair' into the search box above your post, read some of the horror stories and then ask yourself whether you really want to book with them.

Besides what others rightfully wrote, you would arrive at Terminal 1 and leave from Terminal 5. So 90 minutes is not that much, although it is doable. So the key point is to make sure both flights are on one single ticket (you would otherwise have to collect your luggage and check-in again and, worse, you'd be at risk of loosing your second ticket if you miss your flight). And the best way to buy it is to do it with TAM or BA.
