Wow, that is not a bad price at all. Around 600 US from Halifax to Tokyo huh? Hard to get a price like that from LAX.
As far as service, you will fly Eagle ERJ135s from between YHZ and JFK, 777s to and from NRT (Y seats will have 34-35" of MRTC, if you cannot get exit row) and a 762ER LAX-JFK (also with 34" MRTC, or more if in exit row). Their F/As are nice and professional, and you have your choice between coke and pepsi (why anyone choses pepsi, I don't know why =)) and Dr. Pepper

And the F/As on the JFK-NRT and LAX-NRT legs will all be around 80 years old. NRT is the single most senior trip for JFK-based F/As, usually a minimum of 36 years seniority to hold the trip, with the exception of the 3 Japanese speakers on board.

I flew the YHZ-JFK route and you can expect once you clear customs at JFK to get your bags from the claim area and then re-enter security to get to your NRT flight since YHZ isn't a pre cleared airport for US operations. You may already know this, but I didn't and it was more of a nuisance than anything else! Considering I paid $300something to get from DFW to YHZ, that's a great deal you got!

The AA trans-oceanic product is far superior to any other US airline, especially on the 777. You should have a wonderful trip. The only thing you might have difficulty with is connecting at JFK. AA's inter-terminal connections there can be a bitch sometimes, so check to see how much time you have.
