Syncmaster is correct, it makes no sense for AA to send a 773 down under. To be frank, I'm glad they don't! QF is much nicer, in my humble opinion! Mind you, I think the time might be coming for QF to send another service from LAX to SYD. They're always hard to get on whenever I book, and are always chock-a-block.

Why would AA want to compete with its Oneworld partner??? QF and AA have been joined at the hip for years now and AA making 1 token daily flight from LAX versus QF's 3 dailies to Sydney, daily to Melbourne, 3 x a week to Brisbane and 3 x a week to Auckland isn't much of a comparison.
AA flies to the following destinations over the Pacific;
Chicago - Tokyo (B777)
Dallas/Fort Worth - Tokyo (2xB777)
Los Angeles - Tokyo (xB777)
New York City-JFK - Tokyo (xB777)
San Jose - Tokyo (B777)
These are from IP's list posted on here a while back.

I was about to correct you on the 2x daily DFW-AA), Japan">NRT flights, but then I checked my timetable and noticed that AA is offering 2 daily frequencies DFW-AA), Japan">NRT. Thanks for giving me the heads-up!

Comparing a QF 747 and AA 777 on a LAX-SYD flight depends on the class you are flying in. Cattle car? MRTC puts QF's offering to shame - no contest. Business? If QF has the new sleeper seats then they win, otherwise it's close. First - the Flagship Suite arrangements beat QF, especially if you have a window seat. The nose of a 747 is rather special, but the FS is fantastic. Cabin crew? A flip of the coin for both - sometimes you get lucky.
