Virgin started flights to ORD from LHR some time ago i remember and they dropped it. Anyone why know why they scrapped the route? And are there any plans to re-instate it?

thanks

They dropped it along with Toronto shortly after Sept. 11. There was a lot of competition on ORD-LHR from UA, AA, BA, and even AI.

Even though there was a lot of competition, i still expected VS to compete fiercely given their service and track record.
