Could Qantas lease/borrow 777's from Emirates?

Similar scenario was, when Etihad was using a VA 777 between AUH and KUL.

If they can do that, why not bolster their A330 fleet? At least it's relevant to their network beyond BNE-LAX.

With what A330's? The ones from Jetstar will take time to turn over.

Go lease them? If it's so easy to borrow planes from EK surely you can shuffle in some A330s like snap.

On a more serious note, though, I understand that JQi is contracting somewhat, with some of the Jetstar Asia widebody runs being pulled. Perhaps a rationalisation of JQi's timetable could allow some of them to be returned early.
