A fine sentiment, but if I am not mistaken this flight takes the place of a previous Qantas A380 into London (which is where the Heathrow slot comes from). Until now there were two A380s daily, both operating via Dubai. Now there is one such A380 and this one B787 via Perth. As the 787 is, roughly, half an A380, that's about a 25% reduction in Qantas availability, cabin crew opportunities, etc, to London.
