    i dont think anyone knows yet :( I keep reading trip reports on the virgin forums and some people are saying that they had a proper gate in november but then others saying when they arrived back they got a stand because of terminal congestion

    I really hope they go back to using gates. With those remote stands what happens if it rains when we're waiting to get on the plane

    Ive been watching too and emailed Virgin but the only reply was that the trial was up until the end of October at which point it would be reviewed :/
