Amenity kits in Economy?

I haven't flown VS economy since they started the whole basic/light/delight...irritant. I have an overnight flight coming up from JFK to LHR in Economy Delight (V fare) and was curious if there are still amenity kits given out in Economy? I'm wondering if I'll need to pack a toothbrush (from a prior amenity kit) in my carry on.
Thanks in advance.

on a night flight yes but not on a day flight.

Pack a proper toothbrush. The ones in any airline kit are often scratchy and gum damaging.

To reduce waste (and cost), they are not provided on every seat anymore; just ask a crew member.

Have a great trip.

Thank you both. I'll bring a spare in my carry on and report back afterwards on just how "delightful" the flight was .

An update on my trip. No amenity kits on the seats in economy for my overnight flight (VS4). I didn't bother to ask a FA for one since I had the essentials in my carry on.
Economy Delight tasted like garden variety VS economy, except that I was able to pre select a bulk head seat. There was easily 3' of space between the seat and the wall, more than enough room for me to stretch my legs out without touching anything. That part in and of itself was delightful.
The FA did come welcome me on board (I'm VS gold) and ask if I was OK with not having a seat back entertainment system in front of me. She said that I could move to a seat farther back if I preferred having the seat back entertainment but I declined. Ah Virgin, always trying to move me to the back of the plane
