Perhaps the moderators on here are a bit sensitive to any perceived slight regarding the 380?
Are you all sensitive souls perhaps?
Here is the quote for completeness
The Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner versus the Airbus A380
"One of the big advantages of the Dreamliner is that it gives us a range of destinations we couldn't have done before," Joyce said. "It gives you better economics because it's 20% more fuel efficient and with a lot lower maintenance cost given the new technology. That means there are routes we could have done before with distance, but couldn't do economically that now come onto the radar screen."
"For Qantas, it also starts overcoming the tyranny of distance we have," Joyce added.
And the differences in economics between the Dreamliner and Qantas' previous flagship, the Airbus A380 Superjumbo are stark.
According to Joyce, he can fly two 236-seat Dreamliners for less than the cost of a single 486-seat A380, which entered the Qantas fleet in 2008.
"If we were to fly two 787s tail-to-tail, the per-seat cost would be less than the A380," the Qantas CEO said.

Love to know what part of Airliners.net know more about Australian Aviation than a Business Insider piece interviewing a CEO....but I’m not holding my breath for a reasoned answer.
