I just was looking through a schedule of LHR since I will be there next friday.
After checking through all flights I noticed that there was no flight of Virgin Atlantics A340-600. It only showed either the 744 or A343 but no A346.
Does VS not use them in a regular way yet? Do they just deploy them on a flight where they think it could be used well at the moment?

I know that VS has been taking bookings on the 346-operated flights as if they would be operated with a 343. It appears that Airbus and VS are expecting higher-than-normal fleet introduction problems with the 346. That's why I doubt anyone would be able to find out definitively what aircraft VS would use on a specific flight. I guess you will just have to try your luck.
