Why are they missing the most promising airport- Bengaluru? Strange indeed!
I suspect, they are waiting since Bangalore is a very competitive destination, and they will need early morning and late evening flights. They may not enough fleet right now.
From what I understand, DEL-BLR is an absolute bloodbath in terms of competition. Maybe UK is waiting for the market to pick up again in a few months before entering the fray. I doubt operating such a highly competitive route in the lean season is going to do well for their balance sheets.
