Inflight review: British Airways Boeing 777-200: Club World: London to Bangalore
Interestingly the aircraft will be parked at Bangalore airport for nearly half the day after arriving from London at noon, the return flight reaching London in the morning should be attractive to business travellers wanting to maximize their work day.
There have been a number of new flights announced between India and the United Kingdom in the past few months, Virgin Atlantic resumed its flights from London to Mumbai and will operate a second daily from London to New Delhi. The airline has also recently announced a Manchester service from the capital.
The additional flights are currently scheduled to be operated only through the coming spring season. Many airlines are being forced to redeploy capacity due to cancellation of flights to mainland China due to the Coronavirus. However, this will be a good opportunity for British Airways to explore demand for an additional frequency from Bangalore.
