You might want to consider the 138 back from BOM. It's normally a hi-J 747 and is a much more enjoyable experience than a boring 9 hour day flight on a less than wonderful 777. On the 138, get on, got to sleep, wake up in London. Of course if you want the full Club experience then the day flight is better, but as the BOM regulars will testify the catering has to be some of the worst on the network.

I am always underwhelmed with catering ex-India which is remarkable really, given the superb quality and choice of food you can have whilst in the country. I now make sure I always eat just before leaving the hotel so I don't have to bother on the flight. If I get peckish I can always have some cheese and biscuits, which are normally edible, or some chocolates with my champagne
