Just looked at QR from Perth for September and it shows a 777-300ER. Another A380 withdrawn from the MEAs? Unclear if it has the Q suites.

Another "z" solution - zopiclone (although you are left with a bitter Campari-like taste for a few hours on waking); this can fit in neatly with Chris's ideas if you need to sleep but the brain says no!
