Isn't it funny that a few years ago the A340 seemed to be on its way out (the A330 was SO much more efficient!)? I had actually written the type off on my "bucket list" of types, but the LH groups is really finding markets for them!!

This is the problem, Europe has its things too. In Norway for example the dollar went to the clouds.

Let's hope once they get more 787 they can return to daily separate SCL and EZE flights.
To consider also is the rather poor timing of the northbound flight, that is a daytime one and arriving at YYZ too late for connections to Europe or Asia. Traditionally, AC (and CP before) did very good business with those Asia bound passengers. Clearly something went amiss with separating both destinations.

AC will have to rely on Canada-Argentina O&D, these days Argentina-Asia traffic is being funneled through EK & QR and hard to see many flying EZE-YYZ-Europe with every major capital in Europe is connected non stop to EZE
