So we all know that Qantas has extra Slots that are being leased by BA...with the New 787 do we think that Qantas might take back those leases and use them for some more routes to LHR via DXB.

I can't see that happening. Timing won't favour a double-daily Boeing 787 from Perth to London, and the only other aircraft which could do this route would be the Airbus A380. Qantas is losing Melbourne's London-via-Dubai service in order to promote the Boeing 787 Perth-London service, so why would it bring that back or open another A380 London-via-Dubai service from any other city, eg Brisbane, which has a much smaller customer base that Melbourne? No, I think this is all we'll see for London.
