What domestic pier are you referring to? Down by gate 8? It's been recently renovated and looks quite good! The 80-90 gate area kcould do with an overhaul, EI still operate all their flights from there, I'm not aware of any planned upgrade works!

Quoting skipness1E (Reply 2):
Gate 8, as of now, only BA's LBA service would be using it as BHD ad DUB go from Pier 4A. They are not going to need five stands for a single route. All other domestics are now at T5.
Leeds doesn't start until 7th December so right now there is only Belfast domestic .
Plus Dublin common travel area services plus the following European services Transferred from T5
Dusseldorf - transferred (Why this since it's a code share with oneworld partner AB and there must be tons of connecting traffic from the Rhur business community !)
Luxembourg- transferred - 2 daily flight with rubbish times for Point to Point business anyway !
Lyon - transferred
Marseille - transferred
Toulouse - transferred
As for the provincial french flights have BA decided that to compete with AF over CDG they should offer inconveinent terminal connections as well?
Hanover - Ex bmi regional service
From December the following new services are added
Rotterdam - New (possibly includes some slot sitting rotations) - Starts 9th December
Zagreb- New starts 9th December
Then the various mid haul services using those ex bmed A321s

Presumably T1 "Gate 8" area is the area the VS domestic flights will operate from? I can't think of anywhere else at LHR that can accomodate them. Has the gate area for the VS MAN flight been confirmed?
