India is a decent connection point I think, usually good availability and cheap and shortish onward flights

One negative is either you get a visa or you have to consider your connection carefully. If you have bags I’m not sure if Virgin will through check to a seperate ticket. On the way back should be doable if you stick to Air India or Thai . But you either book something risky or get stuck with a long wait airside . Also check terminals and if you can transit airside without a visa. Also think about Irrops and what you’d do . (I’d probably just get the evisa regardless of my plans!)

You could get the visa and connect in two different airports with a nights stopover and make that all part of the fun!
