If they feel like risking their lives, LHR-SEA is one of the routes Virgin is planning when they get their 787s.

Having visited the factory during the development, I suspect it's going to be Boeing's Comet. They were very gung-ho about using materials with which they have no significant experience, and dismissive of the company with the experience which is going slowly and incrementally. I fear a new and interesting failure mode is about to be discovered, though whether it appears quickly (like the Comet) or after a lot of cycles (like on the early 737s) is yet to be seen.
