Qantas suspends Melbourne-Dubai flights

Australia's Qantas Airlines has officially confirmed that it will be adjusting its long haul network to Europe and Southeast Asia from the start of the IATA Summer 2018 season in the below mentioned manner:

1. Daily MEL-DXB-LHR A380 flights will be suspended and replaced with daily B789 operated MEL-PER-LHR services

2. The A380 used for MEL-DXB-LHR will instead be used to upgrade MEL-HKG to a daily A380 operation which is currently being operated by a daily B744

In turn this results in a massive capacity drop at London for QF who go from double daily A380 to daily A380 + daily B789 which carriers such as QR/EY will appreciate it means less competition on DXB-MEL + LHR-DXB + LHR-SYD/MEL
