Seems BOAC’s routing via the Pacific to Australia was London-New York-Los Angeles-Honoulu-Fiji-Sydney.

This flightglobal.com archive article from 1962 explains that BOAC management was worried that the VC-10 lacked the range of the B707.

At that time it was reported that BOAC was looking to cancel a number of VC-10s it had on order in favour of puchasing some B707s.
