While I don't know for sure if it will be a Classic or not, it seems that almost every flight out of LGW is currently operated by a 747-400, even the flights to the Carribean. Those 5 new 747-400s are being worked hard!

Dreamexpress is right - VS043 is a 744.

The Amadeus CRS is showing the B747-400 as operating all Virgin Atlantic's flights to Las Vegas for the rest of the winter season.

Have a good flight!

Thanks for the info folks, normally I only fly Continental out of LGW, but Virgin having the direct flight to LAS saves me a ton of time tommorow
