comment Heathrow Terminal 5 to Cambridge
T5 to KX by Picadilly Line is about 1 hour 15 of travel time, all being well, plus time to get down to the tube, wait for a train (every ~7 mins for most of the day), then a long walk back to the surface at the far end. I'd say you need to allow 1:45 for it

Do you know if it's possible to credit the train leg to your SNCF Voyageur program if you'd rather? Or does it have to go to Flying Blue if anywhere?

comment How do you exit Dutch railway stations with an international paper-based ticket?
Surely in that case you either tailgate another passenger, or just push really hard on the barriers - must barriers are set to open with an alarm on a certain pressure, typically triggered in huge crowds

comment Package-deal or plain ticket + hotel booked separately?
Which country would you be booking in? In some counties (eg the UK with ATOL), booking a package deal of flight+hotel gets you extra protections beyond that of two individual bookings

comment Heathrow Terminal 5 to Cambridge
Also, from Paddington, if you want to save a few quid you can take a bus rather than the tube. Probably takes about twice as long though

comment Heathrow Terminal 5 to Cambridge
You mention that the HEX is pricey but fast - wouldn't it be covered by the BritRail ticket?

comment Lufthansa transit at Frankfurt on the way from Chennai to Atlanta, are two hours enough?
This also assumes that it's all on one ticket, so the airline will help you out if your inbound flight is late. On two tickets, and especially two non-changable tickets, you might want to allow more time

comment Facilities available during layovers by Air India
Did you try asking them? Might be a quicker way to get an authoritative answer than asking here!

comment How do you exit Dutch railway stations with an international paper-based ticket?
That's certainly how it works in the UK at barriered stations - at least one barrier (normally the wide one) will have a member of staff by it who can check problematic or non-standard tickets, then open the gate for you. If there's no member of staff available, they must (and normally do) leave at least one gate open

comment Travelling with 2 check-in bags
If they've got decent wheels, shouldn't be a problem pulling 2 of them for a fair distance - I've done it quite a few times. 3, however, is rather tricky... Not impossible mind you, just not much fun...
