Virgin to launch London Heathrow to Las Vegas flights

Virgin Atlantic will launch London Heathrow to Las Vegas flights from March 31, 2019, moving the flight it currently operates from London Gatwick to its Terminal 3 Heathrow hub.

The existing Gatwick flight is with a B747. The new flights will be operated by a B787-9 aircraft which is an overall capacity drop (eg: there are fewer seats on the B787), but there are more premium seats. Virgin says it has seen a growing demand from corporate travellers as Vegas is one of the largest conference centres in the world. The airline ran a successful trial last year where two flights from Heathrow took tech professionals to CES in Vegas.
