Yes, I work for BA and on Yammer ( internal forum) someone asked if this meant that LGW was getting an extra 777 and someone from the fleet planning team replied back saying no. Just the slack in the existing schedule, Cape Town will have ended when Vegas starts and the reduction in OAK, MCO and KIN will fund the Toronto. Obviously some aircraft will rotate from Heathrow during that time too, but based aircraft will remain the same.
