  1. My booked flight vs131 on 16/01/2018 apparently leaves at 1145?? Will it be from Heathrow or Gatwick??

    1. VS131 is the London Heathrow flight to Barbados. According to the Virgin website it does still depart at 13:15. Virgin’s flight from Gatwick to Barbados operates under flight number VS29.
