BA will likely pick up a lot of passengers from Canada and the USA. Toronto, NY/NJ, DC and Dallas all have large Pakistani diasporas, and well-timed too with these flights.
Doesn't really work with East Coast - LHR - LHE given many of the last east coast flights arrive into Heathrow by 11 am, so having a 7 hour layover in Heathrow is not ideal; return is a little better. Not that it really matters given Lahore is already a huge O&D market, so whatever connections are made are the cherry on top
