QF has 3 undelivered 787 in desert storage. They’ve negotiated with Boeing that they won’t take delivery till operationally required. Probably from Oct. They’re currently training many ex 747 pilots to fly the 787.

The remaining 3 were NOT cancelled. QF negotiated with Boeing not to take delivery until the A/C were required. As the article says they were flown straight into storage.

We do a number of A380 charters for large groups each year. As there is no spare capacity in the fleet to enable a charter of an entire aircraft a scheduled service must be cancelled or converted to a charter.

Morning arrivals into Australia/USA are preferred for the reason of maximising connecting traffic. Morning arrivals allow the maximum opportunity for connecting flights to other cites or regional destinations. The same goes for evening departure from London and Los Angeles.
