With regard to GEO service, normally, we receive route, air regs and airport information about a new destination around 6 months in advance. This give Flight Operations time to assess things. This has happened with all new destinations we have introduced in the last few years. As this has yet to happen, I assume it is not coming any time soon.
With regard to the YYZ-LAX-SYD route, it appears that it will be one of the new routes introduced with the introduction of the B777. We recently had an equipment bid, and it was curious that all B777 assignments were in YYZ. When asked, management advised this was due to the new routes they had in mind first for the B777; YYZ-HKG, YYZ-DEL/BOM, YYZ-3 destinations in China, and YYZ-LAX-SYD.
