Washington, DC. Fly to NYC, then 16 hours direct flight to New Delhi. - Oct 22, 2017
Washington, DC. We had a couple of options for flights. United Airlines flew Dulles to Newark to Delhi. The final flight being about 14-15 hours. Connection time in Newark varied. Several airlines flew from Dulles to Europe to Delhi, including British Airways going via London. Those flights split the travel in half--about 7-8 hours each flight. Emirates had a Dulles-Dubai-Delhi flight that we took as well. It was about 14 hours from Dulles to Dubai and about 3 onward to Delhi. Overall, expect about 20 hours of travel time. - Mar 15, 2017

I'm from New York. 13 hours direct. More like 24 with connections. - Nov 8, 2016
There are non-stop flights from Delhi to NYC (JFK & EWR), Chicago, and San Francisco. Dozens more connect through Europe. The current city-pair fair for Delhi to DC is an American Airways codeshare with British Airways, with mixed reviews. Some flights arrive or leave at ungodly hours, but there are a few more better options with the advent of the 777 and 787 flying longer routes with smaller passenger loads. - Jun 2, 2016
