Hey folks... i was wondering if someone could help me out here. I heard a rumour that Qantas was operating a special flight to LHR through DXB. Is this true? If so when? Would be great to see QF in DXB!

There was an earliest thread stating that a QF LHR bound flight had stopped at DXB as they were conveying an Australian team (forgot which sport and cannot find the thread in a search of the forums) to compete in Dubai. Presumably this is why you heard the rumour.
MOL on SRB's latest attack at BA: "It's like a little Chihuahua barking at a dying Labrador. Nobody cares."

The flight operated ex LHR to DXB and then SYD to pick up the Iraqi football team who are playing an international friendly against Australia this week in SYD.
Also in June there will be a "Captains Club" all inclusive (and very expensive) charter operating to a few non QF destinations. The 744 will visit Delhi, Marrakech, Tripoli, Nairobi and Mauritius, reportedly the first time for a QF aircraft in both Marrakech and Tripoli.
