I suspect YEG/YWG-LGW would get dropped. YVR-LGW would get upguaged to the 789.

Jury is still out on what would happen to YYZ-BCN though.
Westjet has been moving towards a hub-and-spoke model for awhile, so I would not be surprised to see YWG/YEG-LGW dropped.

In a sense it sucks for these places, but in a sense, they're not losing much. A once a week flight direct from Winnipeg to London isn't really much good for business travelers or anybody who needs flexibility in their plans. Unless you hate connecting (and I see your point there) the flight is of marginal value.
