I just got info from mucforum.de that LH has coordinated 3 weekly flights from MUC to YVR starting in June. Whether these are just "slot reservations" or serious intentions for that route is not yet known, new information is expected in a couple of days. The new flight to Lahore seems to be introduced from FRA.
It seems that LH might give up their plans of starting MUC-PEK in favor of MUC-YVR. Obviously LH partners wish to fly that route instead (mentioned are Air Canada with 3 weekly 744 flights and Varig (!!) with GRU-MUC-PEK).

A MUC-YVR flight would make great sense since YVR-FRA is always filled to capacity during the summer. It was the last route to be served by a 742 due to its large capacity and with the 346 being introduced on the route, I believe their is a slight reduction in capacity. Another 2-class aircraft on a MUC-YVR would help fill the Germany-western Canada summer demand.
