A few adjustments to the original posting:
YVR-KIX - Apparently one "liberated" A340 from the on again off again TPE route. Marketing claims that the 2 763's will be changed to 1 daily 343.
YYZ-KIN - In addition to JM daily codeshare service, there will be 2 supplemental AC A319's operating for a total of 9 weekly. Believe the flights are on Tu/Sa.
YYZ-MBJ - RESIII showing daily A319, but will be upgauged to daily A320.
YYZ-TLV - Current schedule for some time now is 5 weekly, not 4, increasing to daily. The current CDA-ISRAEL bilateral has a capacity (total seats) restriction per week. Believe AC is going to ask for an amendment/increase on this route. With the arrival of the A345's, and the pilots not having yet agreed to "ultra-long haul flying" (more than 19 hour duty days), a combination of the A343's and the A345's may be used on current long haul, heavy traffic routes such as YYZ-TLV & YVR-PVG.
Don't believe the Israeli government will allow for capacity increases due to protecionist policies over LY. Currently they are still embroiled in a bitter dispute with LH over capacity on TLV-FRA.

Regarding GCM--I was a little unclear whether you are saying it is reduced to 1x or 2x weekly. AC have typically gone to 2x week in summer when demand falls off and then resume the extra flights in season.
Do you know if/when they are going back to wed/sun YYZ GCM? Thx.

What's the load factor on YYZ-GCM in high and low seasons? A friend of mine travels to GCM several times per year and the flights are never full. She is traveling on Z fares and never had problems to get on. Never more than 50 to 60 pax.....Including non-revs. Could it be another "prestige" route for AC?

It is true that Air Canada has applied for the Toronto-Bogota route 3 times a week. It would then continue to Lima.
There is no bilateral agreement between Colombia and Canada as yet, but that is expected to be cleared soon. Colombian national carriers have a right to express their views on the application. Even so, there is no reason why AC should not be able to start this route by the winter timetable as they have requested.
Bear in mind that there is a sizeable Colombian population around Toronto, and ever more Canadian business (and tourist) interests in both countries. Also, given the US requirements for visas and the difficulty in trying to obtain them, a direct flight would make life much easier for Colombians going to study or visit relatives in Canada. The choice is limited if one wants to do this route avoiding the US. Either through Mexico, or a through Cuba. The latter requires overnight stay in HAV!
