Qantas charges a premium across the Pacific. It does not make sense to erode that premium on carry traffic, particularly when the yields across the Atlantic is not super, given the intense competition.
If one does wish to travel from Europe/UK to Australia via North America, one can always travel with AA, where the Pacific sector is operated on QF metal. It is a fantastic option to fly Qantas, yet avoiding DXB.
