I’m planning to transit through LHR on my way to FRA(Frankfurt, Germany) from BOM(Mumbai, India). I’m in the process of applying for a DATV for transit through LHR.

I was reading multiple posts online regarding transit via LHR, and read that most transit visa applications are rejected. Is this true?

(Before someone asks, I’d like to mention that I’ve chosen this route over Lufthansa since I had quite a bit of Avios).

Edit: I’m planning to travel towards the end of May. My Schengen visa has been approved.
