Go to BA webpage, and manage your booking. It will tell you what time is the latest for check-in. This is according to their webpage.

latest check in time and arrive at airport time can differ considerably. At Phuket there are often long queues for bags to get scanned prior to entering the airport so worth factoring that in.

I plan to arrive no later than 2 hours for domestic and 3 hours for international. It is the same entrance for both and queues to get through security can be horrendous before you hit the ones for check in even though you may have checked in online. Hopefully it will be better after the new airport opens in June.

Are you flying on one ticket with Thai and then straight home? If so then your luggage will go straight through but you will have to clear Immigration in Phuket as well as security and check in queues so treat it as anh International flight with 3 hours arrival at the airport is my advice.

the good thing about this route but in the other direction, ie Heathrow, Bangkok, Phuket is that you clear immigration in Bangkok so don't need to queue at Phuket. It's straight off the plane to the carousel.
