If I land in NRT at 6:45am and I have a connection in HND at 10:25am is that realistically enough time to transfer?
120 characters? Hmm, I wonder what I could write with 64 characters. Boy, it's gonna be hard to use up 15 characters. W-

A bit tight, especially if this is International > International connection.

It is international to international. I won't have any luggage to check but still not sure it's a good idea

It is 1 itinerary that they are selling me...

Train takes about 90 minutes between the 2, car is not much faster if at all. Plus budgeting time for customs, buying train tickets, train, exit customs..

I just booked a Delta ticket MAIN CABIN (L) on Priceline. I checked in, and for the first leg I got a seat, but for the second leg, no seat assigned, and I see that I am standby.
Anything I can do to make sure I snag a seat?
When I check-in for my first leg, will that get me a spot on the second leg? The ticket wasn't cheap, and when i purchased it, I had no idea.
I have no Delta status, but am a SkyMiles member.

Flying through LHR,

On the return, coming from Europe, is that like a domestic transfer? I have a 1:20 layover trying to figure out if thats enough time? Seems like the flights are in the same terminal.

You will go through security but not passport control

Is there expedited security for OW emerald? Does it make a difference?

Also want to know how an LHR-LCY stop over works? Iím assuming there is some sort of bus that goes between the airports? Any idea how much that costs or if it makes more sense to take an uber/taxi? And Iím assuming I have to collect and re-check luggage?

Think of it as like a connection between two NYC airports - i.e. its not easy
Unless things have changed:
Must collect luggage.
Public Trans: minimum of one change (can be up to ~1:35 crossrail-dlr/bus). Two change options are quicker (~1:00 heathrow express-crossrail-dlr/bus) costs at most 25gbp.
By car is ~1:35++

I hear.. I have a 5 hour layover so hopefully that will be enough time. Just wondering how they sell 3 or less if it takes an hour and a half just to drive there.

Do you get to go to any lounge in LHR if you have such a stopover?

Also wanted to know if it is generally easy to link two PNR between AA and BA (may even end up being two BA) so luggage goes straight and donít have to collect?

If the BA has nothing operated by AA then generally AA will not
BA to BA should not be an issue (assuming both operated by BA

Flew them on LGA-MIA multiple times (back in 2022 when I had free 100K status) and it was always fine.
