What potential routes are there from London to the Middle East, Africa and the CIS? I don't know how viable these would be, but here's a list of possibilities:
Dushanbe (used to be served four- or five-times weekly from LHR using Tristars, some of which routed via BHX. There must be people in the UK from Tajikistan. Perhaps BMed could route, say, Heathrow-Baku-Dushanbe?)
I would have added Banghazi to the list, but LN now operates once-weekly from there to LHR.
I see that Samarkand is now being served once-weekly, non-stop by Uzbekistan, routing LHR-Samarkand-TAS, using the 763.

Kilimanjaro would probably do well with tourist traffic--it's the gateway to the northern Tanzania safari circuit (the Serengeti, etc.). As far as I know, KLM's AMS-JRO-DAR-AMS flight is currently the only flight there from Europe, and it seems profitable, given that they are expanding to daily. So it doesn't seem like it would be unreasonable for BA to add it onto their DAR flights a couple of times a week.
