Suggestion for which city to break up our flights on the way to India?

Jump to last reply

We're beginning to plan a trip to Southern India for February.

We'd like to break the long economy class trip from New York to Bangalore into 2 parts.
We could also land in Mumbai, or Delhi, if one of those works better, but Bangalore works best for our plans, as we could then drive south from there, instead of more flying.

So we're asking for suggestions for where to stay for 2 or 3 nights on the way that have non-stop flights from New York, and also non-stop flights from there to India.

I know lots of non-stop flights go JFK-LHR and then LHR-India. But in February that has limited appeal to us. For one thing, who wants to drag cold-weather clothes all over India?

Paris also seems possible, but again, not the best time to be there?

Maybe Istanbul? Anyone been there in winter?

Or any other ideas that might be warmer?

We ruled out Dohar or other mid-east cities because the first leg is so long as to defeat the goal of breaking the trip into 2 more easily tolerable lengths.
