Not really. BA already codeshare with CX and MH to Australia. I also expect that neither QF or BA sees each other as the key competition. I expect that they see the Gulf and mainland Chinese carriers as the real competition.

I also wonder if QF might be building up to ditch the EK partnership, which appears less close than it once did.
