The previous Melbourne to London route, Flight QF 9, was highly regarded as it travelled via Singapore and utilized the spacious A380 aircraft, accommodating a larger number of passengers. As the QF9 current routing has changed, and the flight now operates non-stop from Melbourne to London via Perth, using a smaller aircraft, the 787, in contrast to its counterpart QF1 departing from Sydney, which still utilises the A380.

The 787 aircraft is known for its improved fuel efficiency, and obviously it is a non stop service from Perth. However it does offer fewer options for passengers from Melbourne with 1 daily service, compared to other carriers that may have two daily services via Asia or the Middle East to London.

There is the option of flying to Singapore and then connecting to QF1, however change of schedule, delays may cause the connection to be missed.

Considering the announcement of new routes, it remains uncertain whether a Melbourne to London service via Singapore will be reintroduced, however Syd always seems to be the prefered origin for these.

Maybe the new A350-1000?

Isn't the whole point of the A350 to make it a direct flight to London without the need for a stopover? Qantas have been pretty shy about saying anything, but I hear there's a thing called Project Sunrise coming

You can go Melbourne to Singapore, then pick up QF1 to London.. with a stop in the Singapore first lounge (depending upon your status)
