The flight schedule for November 8 to December 2 is available here

A Virgin Atlantic spokesperson said:

“As a direct result of new restrictions and the expected drop in customer demand, effective from 8 November until 3 December 2020 we will temporarily reduce our passenger flying programme.

“If we cancel a customer’s flight, we will be in touch with them and they will have the option to rebook or request a refund. We apologise for any disappointment or inconvenience caused to our customers and remain so grateful for their patience during these extraordinary circumstances.

“While we have reduced our passenger flying schedule, we’ll continue to serve many of Virgin Atlantic’s destinations on a reduced frequency and provide vital international connectivity from London Heathrow Terminal 2 for customers that need to fly, including journeys permitted for work, education or other legally permitted reasons. We’ll also continue to build on the success of our cargo-only operations, helping to keep global supply chains moving.”

UK airlines have suffered huge drops in demand since March and have been forced to reduce and change their schedules frequently. Virgin and its joint venture partner Delta are currently flying out of Terminal 2 as a result of this drop in demand and the fact that Terminal 3, the normal home for Virgin, is currently closed.
