There are 9 weekly flights and 5 of them stop at 3 of them stop at BKI (Kota Kinabalu) and 2 of them in KCH (Kuching). Most of the flights are operated with a Boeing 737-400 and around 2 flights are operated with an Airbus A330 (one of them stops at KCH and the other is non-stop).
Two weekly flights on day 4 and 7, both via BKI with a 734.
I think load factors do pretty well on both, MNL and CEB. When I flew MNL-BKI three month ago the load-factors was only around 50%.
MAS doesn't fly to Canada at the moment but if I'm not mistaken, they flew to Vancouver a few years ago. In North America only EWR is served 3 times a week.
Hope this helps...

MAS is eyeing flights into Canada again after a 4 year lapse. They suspended their services into Vancouver in 1998 due to the economy crisis as well as the lack of fifth freedom traffic rights at Taipei.
Swissgabe: You forgot that MAS also flies daily from LAX into KUL via TPE. I think that's where most of MAS passengers in the North America comes from, with the exception of the Eastern Seaboard, where they go via EWR.

I heard that Philippine Airlines is reinstating its own flights into Kuala Lumpur soon. Would be great to see them again - they remain the only ASEAN nation without an airline presence at KUL (bar the current code-share).
