I forgot about the VS codeshare to LHR. That is probably what you read. I know people that have booked a VS ticket and ended up on a CO planes into London, they don't make it clear that the flight is actually a code-share.
The only way CO could ever serve LHR with their own planes is if Bermuda II (i think that's what it is called) is modified to allow British Midland and either CO or DL to serve USA from LHR.

I could have sworn that both Delta and Continental won limited access to LHR and that it was reported at least six months ago. I remember being surprised at the time that a big deal was not made about the news here in this forum. While I know very few details and am too lazy to go and look up a real source, this kind of suggests that my memory is somewhat intact.

Heathrow IS on CO's route map because it buys seats on Virgin flights. CO aircraft DO NOT land at LHR. Neither DL nor CO have won the rights to fly
to LHR. The issue has not been settled yet and is far from resolved.

Yes my friend, I do know how to read a route map. My point is that based on the map legend, the color of the line to LHR indicates it is a Continental-operated flight, not a code share. I'm not saying this is correct, just relaying my observation.
