Can be DL or VS. DL seems a bit tighter with inventory, though.

Must the RT originate at LHR (versus the USA) for these fares?

Of course! These fares always must originate in Europe. This would be the deal of the year if it worked from the US

So .... you need to book six months in advance AND the 2019 dates are not yet bookable.

This means that you can ONLY book this offer if you are willing to return to the UK between 24th and 28th October. That's it :-)
