Bangkok is a destination that has been mentioned for quite a with Thai Airlines i believe. Thailand and Cape Town would make good winter destinations.

A slight update on the new routes

"A 3X-weekly service between Manchester (MAN) and Mumbai (BOM) will begin on Dec. 19, operating on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.
The airline then plans to connect MAN with Delhi (DEL) nonstop from Jan. 5, flying 2X-weekly on Tuesdays and Fridays. Both routes will be on board Boeing 787-9s."

Still no actual timings but when the US routes come on board, we can then see the potential India-USA connections

Created this proto-schedule for the service with the connections

USA to India:

0605 VS110 ATL arrive Mon Weds Fri Sat
0700 VS128 JFK arrive Mon Tues Thurs Fri Sun

0935 VS326 BOM depart Mon Weds Sat
1050 VS324 DEL depart Tues Fri

India to USA:
0600 VS325 DEL arrive Weds Sat
0715 VS327 BOM arrive Tues Thurs Sun

1050 VS109 ATL depart Tues Thurs Fri Sun
1120 VS127 JFK depart Mon Wes, Thurs, Sat, Sun

The unknown factor is if they will resume LAX or decide to bring back BOS instead of handing it to DL

0740 VS122 BOS arrive Thurs Sun
1050 VS182 LAX arrive Tue Thurs Sun

1100 VS181 LAX depart Mon Weds Sat
1520 VS121 BOS depart weds Sat

I can imagine that if they brought back BOS, they may look to alter the MAN departure time so we could look at 3 US routes helping the Indian routes. LAX probably will not feature as a connection; you could get away with India-MAN-LAX but the other way is not happening.
