Air Canada also flies to the airport, but with far fewer flights than Porter.

Yup, and Air Canada are using the Dash-8-400 out of that airport just like Porter.

According to Pearson's website, ET has 3 weekly flights to YYZ. Did I miss an announcement or is this a typo?

I looked at the fares from YYZ to BEG/BUD/WAW, they are very reasonable. WAW is a decent airport as well.

The schedule is correct, Ethiopian Airlines started serving Toronto in July.

Yes, but it was initially with twice weekly service. Is the third flight accurate or a typo on YYZ's website?

Who's excited for an aircraft upgrade? Jet Airways will upgrade its aircraft on the YYZ-BRU-DEL service from the A330-200 to its brand new A330-300 starting 1 February 2013. The result: capacity increase for the long-haul service. Schedule:

9W230 DEL0305 – 0750BRU1015 – 1245YYZ 333 D
9W229 YYZ1825 – 0745+1BRU1020+1 – 2230+1DEL 333 D

There will be some days, though, that the A330-200 will be used on this service. Source

Yes it's 06, nice area for spotting especially if they're using 06 for takeoffs. A creek and nice trails to ride your bike/hike as well.

Excellent. Is it possible to spot a Cubana aircraft or any of the unique carriers flying into and out of YYZ too?

Yes, it is possible to catch Cubana aircraft in Toronto. Currently they are flying a scheduled A320 service on several days of the week however the A320 is leased from Avion Express. They also fly the Tupolev TU-204 on cargo services occasionally.
