I first flew from Orlando to JFK with Delta on October 13th. Before boarding the flight I was called to the flight desk (slightly panicking) but it wasn’t a big deal. They just asked me my final destination (London), asked for my passport, and made sure I was aware of the mandatory 14 day quarantine in the UK.
After a layover in JFK I boarded my flight (also Delta) to LHR on October 13th with no issues at all. The flight was almost empty. Maybe 15 passengers total.
Landed at LHR around 6:30am and went through e-gates. It wouldn’t work for me at first but an employee directed me to another gate and then it worked fine.
Took the tube to St Pancras no issues. It was very crowded though. Going through Eurostar border control I had no issues. Not a single question asked. Not even for my negative Covid test (which I had just in case).
Overall very smooth trip. Just be aware of potential cancellations, and have documents in case.
