Yes, just as the US carriers move out of LGW, BA moves back with a LGW-NYC flight. With the two ex-LCY services, that's quite a bit of extra capacity on the the JFK route (up the front at least), assuming the LHR frequencies remain the same. And then there is OpenSkies which will inevitably take some traffic away from mainline.
