Re: When will ANA (All Nippon Airways) or JAL (Japan Airlines) come to Toronto Pearson YYZ?

Did JAL stopped NRT-YYZ already or do they fly to YYZ from another city? Back in 2014 I've got few JAL 777-200s at YYZ while on spotting trip. I thought they were regular there. Most likely a charter. Was it around September/October? I was there October 5th and October 6th. Both days got JAL 777-20...
