What could be the 747 first routes to which the 8 787s will replace and increase services on those routes? Will Qantas probably order the next lot of 787-9s next year to start new destinations like European destinations through Dubai and/or replace the 747ERs?

Probably some of the North American routes like LAX and (soon to start) SFO runs.

I would expect the first batch of 787s to be put on the current 747 North America flights while the 6 ERs get used for the JNB, SCL and HND flights (with SYD-HKG going to A330 maybe become 2 daily, day and overnight in each direction).

I could see a 2nd batch of 787s for growth in Asia and maybe Europe while a 3rd batch (or maybe a limited order of 77X) replaces the 744ERs ~2022.
