1. LH 455 dep SFO around 2PM, not early evening!

2. There is no 20-hr wait in LHR on BA for BLR-LHR-SFO

BA 118
dep BLR 6:45am, arr LHR 12:35pm

BA 287
dep LHR 1:50pm, arr SFO 4:40pm

CX seems to offer a better schedule to MAA but BLR does not yet seem that great. IT schedules to both JFK and SFO from BLR look so attractive.

I'd happily switch at least 50% of my travel to IT. Need to keep the rest on other carriers for connections to various other destinations.

The challenge seems to be making profits on this route without a lot of cargo capacity. Maybe they can find enough high value, time sensitive, low weight cargo.
