SINGAPORE, Feb 5 (Reuters) - Australia's Qantas Airways Ltd will let one of its 15 options over Boeing Co 787-9 Dreamliner jets lapse in February and will make a decision on some others in a "few more months," its chief executive said on Monday.

"We will be passing on the first 787 (option), having a look at how Perth-London performs," CEO Alan Joyce told Reuters on the sidelines of the Singapore Airshow Aviation Leadership Summit.

The carrier, which starts non-stop flights from Perth to London next month, is also examining a business case for its budget arm Jetstar to take Airbus' A321neos, Joyce said. (Reporting by Jamie Freed Editing by Muralikumar Anantharaman)
