No it won't as VS is already operating profitable routes from LHR, LGW and MAN (to a lesser extent)

I’m not sure why the last bit of that was a laboured point. Both MAN and LGW will operate at 6 based aircraft this summer (both 4xB744 and 2xA330), with MAN poised to overtake LGW for based ops next summer (4xB744 and 3xA330), and a lot of the media put out by VS of late insinuates MAN is the secondary base to LHR, so, seems to be holding its own against the London ops, certainly looks to be more important than LGW of late, thus, not sure the ‘to a lesser extent’ was required.

MAN will be even bigger than LGW once the BE takeover is complete and the Flybe brand has been phased out. All that's needed to complete the MAN offering is the Clubhouse and increasing frequencies to year-round (and ideally daily) of the routes added in recent years.

Not sure if this is related but noticing a KLM codeshare flight number now appearing on DL’s PDX-LHR flight for this summer. Wasn’t there last week. Will AF add their codeshare flight number as well?
