Seems odd to have bought ERs then use them on shortish flights ?
It's an established practice from several Asian airlines to 'abuse' long haul aircraft on comparatively short trips in-between long flights so as to secure intensive aircraft use. The idea seems to be 'better abuse an aircraft than leave her on the ground'.

Kemble is filling up with BA wide body aircraft awaiting the chop ! First BA B767 for Kemble G-BNWS going in to join 2 BA B747-400s already their. One sighter approach as its cloudy and raining here today, for a change !
VAS will relocate the aircraft to its European aircraft teardown partner, Tarmac Aerosave, in Tarbes, France, while the 100-inch Pratt & Whitney engines will be positioned for redeployment within VAS’s extensive maintenance partner network, Hughes noted.
