Out of interest, how many of the LHR routes used to be served from LGW?

I flew VS012 from BOS to LGW once, I see that now goes to LHR.

I think EWR and MIA also used to be served from LGW by VS. Anywhere else?
Next flights: LGW-LBA-LGW, LHR-SIN-SYD, SYD-BKK-LHR, LGW-GRO, GRO-CIA, CIA-MAD, MAD-LGW

EWR was an LGW flight once upon a time. However, wasn't VS entirely restricted to LGW at first, until they put up a legal challenge and were granted the authority to operate out of LHR?

I certainly remember VS005/006, to/from MIA, was once flown from LGW using 742s. Indeed, I have the ITVV video of those flights.

I can't remember - did VS actually begin ORD or YYZ or both?

I'm almost sure that VS flew to ORD for a short period. Can't confirm for YYZ though. From what I've heard is that both destinations were cancelled after 9/11.
