I'm just posting the result of my experience in case anyone else somehow ends up in the same situation and has no options but to cancel the ticket or try traveling. United Airlines didn't bother checking for a visa at all. In the UK, PIA made sure to check my Pakistani ID several times.

Logically the outcome of your situation ought to be that United in New York will be able to issue you a boarding pass for the first leg, but not for the second -- and then you'd be free to check in for the second leg in London once you have arrived there and acquired the appropriate paperwork. You probably can't get your baggage checked through either, but ...

There are no such restrictions. If you have a valid visa for Pakistan (and you would need one), you can enter Pakistan.

There appear to be restrictions on the vehicles that are allowed to cross the border at Wagah: Regular buses or taxis are not allowed into the no-man's land between the countries, so unless you're on one of the few deluxe international buses, you'll have to walk across the 500m between the border posts yourself. Porters -- blue coats for the Indians, ...

No first hand experience, but I can tell you that yes, getting the Indian visa as a citizen of Pakistan will be a major hassle. The Indian High Commission in London is not very informative, but the Consulate General in Toronto has a good page that outlines the process: Pakistani Citizen Please click on the link http://www.india.org.pk/Sponsor%...

I frequently visit Karachi - and even though I am from Pakistan I consider myself an expat since I have lived the majority of my life outside and I am not from Karachi so it adds another layer of unfamiliarity to the situation. Karachi is a very large metropolis - the largest in Pakistan. It has its safe parts, and it has its rough parts just like every ...
