CDG-YVR is usually a 42J 77W in the high season. Guessing there will be a few changes this time around between the end of the A380 and the small flu going around.

A359 gives VA the flexibility of future A35K and A330neo. Say they focus on making LAX daily from the big East Coast hubs and HND. Maybe try to tie in with LATAM under DL guidance ? That could help poach QF traffic to SCL and beyond. JNB could also be a possibility.
