I think this is what one might call a brain fart. But I could be proven wrong.

Oh how I wish it were true. Perth to London none stop. Fantastic. I'd go for the weekend!

Assuming Perth upgrades its current facilities, a standby airport is built for diversions (or Learmouth gets upgraded) and the fuel price remains the same as it is today. And the seating better be really comfortable because 18 hours stuck in economy is enough to make anyone borderline insane.
