That was true when they initially launched the A380 into YYZ, but the route is so over-capacity right now, if given daily rights, they would almost certainly keep the A380. EK's true ultimate goal is double daily to YYZ before any other Canadian city. If they get double daily, that's when I could see them down gauging to 777's for both flight.
