I thought the UK-India bilateral agreement restricts BA from adding new frequencies to India ? I know the bilateral stipulates an increase in frequency every year, but AI doesn't seem to be in any position to increase its own share of the allotted quota of flights on the LHR-India sector, unless the Civil Aviation ministry wakes up from its stupor and do something to increase AI's pathetic fleet size. Besides how's AI going to take it if the British (as former member B747-437B elaborated) don't provide AI with reasonable slots at LHR for LHR-ORD/LHR-YYZ/LHR-YUL ?
