United Airlines to start San Francisco-Bengaluru flight Next October
Few routes have received as much attention or experienced as many delays as United Airlines’ flight from San Francisco to Bengaluru. Since its initial announcement 14 months ago, it has been scheduled and made available for booking on numerous times.
Even still, it hasn’t really taken off yet, ostensibly due to the pandemic’s aftereffects; ultra-long-haul is extremely difficult to make work even in the best of circumstances. United has set the start date for October 2023 in the most recent schedule file, but a lot could happen in the following year.
It is scheduled as follows, with all times local:
- San Francisco to Bengaluru: UA152, 18:55-00:50 (+2); first flight October 28th
- Bengaluru to San Francisco: UA153, 03:55-08:30; first flight October 30th
