|Quoting Gkirk (Reply 1):|
Virgin Trains now carries 2/3 of people going between Manchester and London.
I understand Virgin also have quite a number of trains between Liverpool and London as well, which may be scarin the likes of BD and BA from trying LPL-LHR. Thus BA/BD will use their LHR slots for more lucrative routes such as MME and LBA
