Which should be the aircraft returning from LHR as well. The 787 is a lovely aircraft i've flown on a KLM one out of SFO and it was nice and quiet.
We usually arrive at Melbourne from London via Dubai at 0630 after passing through two midnights at local times en route - one on the London-Dubai sector and the other on the Dubai-Melbourne sector. We then stay up all day which is a bit of an endurance in order to go to bed in the Melbourne evening. On this trip we get into PER from LHR at tea time local time the day after leaving London. It will be interesting to see if this is any better with the jet lag.
