Flying from London Heathrow?

Hi all,

Can anyone find someone flying from London Heathrow in the next few days to help a semi-homeless Zurich resident?!

Sadly my house keys are sitting in London Heathrow Airport at Lost Property and I'm locked out of my home here until they come back.

Thanks in advance if you know, or can find someone to help!

ALTERNATIVE: someone flying from London Heathrow Terminal 5 to anywhere on earth (yes, really), tomorrow (Saturday 6th) at noon, or just after.

I'm flying through T5 on Sunday 10/04 and I land in Zurich around 22.20.

Let me know if I can help?

Hi gijap.

So I take it you've located the keys on the Bagport website and your flight was with BA?

Have Bagport told you how much they're going to charge for 'storage' of your keys?

Do you have a BA Avios or Executive Club card?

Did you have travel insurance, or do you have it on your bank account of credit card, or any insurance that would cover the loss of your keys?

Does anyone at all have a set of keys for your apartment?

AMDG - I might have found someone flying tomorrow - but will PM you. Thanks for getting in touch!

Phil - thanks, Ive tried that.

Blueangel - yes they have it, and it costs £15, as I dont have Gold status. I have loss of key insurance, which would cover a locksmith coming at 500CHF, but they said they need to destroy the cylinder lock - so the original keys (used for whole building and flat) would no longer work.

Sadly I hadnt got round to leaving a spare with a friend - will do that as soon as I get the key back!

Re: Flying from London Heathrow?

When we lost Mr.Longby's hearing aids in Singapore, we asked the airline if they could look for them for us. They found them at the airport and I asked them by email if they couldn't be flown to Christchurch N.Z. And they were indeed flown over and we were told precisely where we could pick them up at Christchurch airport. One signature required. Cost to us - zero. Singapore Airlines For Ever.

Re: Flying from London Heathrow?

How did you manage to get them to keep the hearing aid with the airline so they could bring it over? My key was given to a lost and found agency who then controls it and charges a £15 to retrieve.

15 April is a bit too late - but thanks anyway!

Re: Flying from London Heathrow?

Did you see AMDG's offer for Sunday 10th ?

Another idea is to keep a spare key at work, and ask a colleague to collect it.

Saw AMDG for Sunday - have PM'ed!

I used to keep a spare key at the office, but as I recently quit the corporate world, I brought it back home and hadn't got round to passing it to a friend/neighbour yet

Yes, I keep one at the office too. I live in fear of losing my door keys.
