V-Flyer shows that G-VAEL (340-300) operated VS009/VS010: http://www.v-flyer.com/aircraft.asp?flight=G-VAEL&search=yes.

I know for a fact that it didn't. It was on its way and returned to London, from what I heard. I know for a fact that it didn't arrive since pax were reproed to other airlines

That would explain (amongst other reasons) why the return flight was "assumed". I cannot find anything on any news sources or on the VS forums, which are usually up-to-date on that type of stuff.

from what I heard
I would go back to that source and ask.

Perhaps someone from VS could help out?  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

I did go back to VS. My contact doesn't know why. There were 4 flights on Saturday instead of the usual 3. The 4th flight was VS110 and it was sent to deal with the left over pax from friday's canxd flight

In fact G-VAEL did operate but about 22hrs late! It was planned to operate the VS9 on schedule on 13th but the a/c went tech and there was nothing else available, so operated the following day when it was serviceable and the crew were back in hours.

Cheers
