They have plenty of capacity @ 7 & 8 west so no real need of more back up here,

Other possibilities are 4 west & 5 west,

5 west is very low on fuel & Eutelsat 5 west B is a late launch now 4 months away from launch 6 months to serviceable operation,

4 west has limited capacity frequency due to the launch failure of Amos 6 in 2016,
By leasing AsiaSat-8 now called Amos-7 only partially solved the problem of the Amos 6 launch,
So extra back up is needed here.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

UK South
The spacecraft has been up there for close on 16 years, so it might be close to empty. Moving west might be a fuel saving exercise, letting her go right round the planet for very little expenditure. All it takes is a bit more time.
