Flybe relevant comments from Virgin executive vice-president of operations Philip Meher talking to FlightGlobal earlier this week about their LHR expansion plans:

Regarding Virgin Atlantic's domestic and intra-European ambitions, Meher stays that "Flybe would be a key connector for us into Manchester and Heathrow", adding that the carrier would "use Flybe to expand our regional footprint into Europe and feed that traffic back into the UK".
Meher also says that the carrier is still working on its plan for how Connect Airways – through which Virgin Atlantic is co-owner of Flybe, Stobart Air and lessor Propius – will be marketed to passengers, noting that it is considering "how that brand would work in terms of the customer proposition... whether that's 'Virgin something' or another brand".
