a few 767 transpacific routes that I know of are
YVR- HNL- SYD
AKL- NAN- LAX
I think that 767 is generally regarded as too small and too slow for most transPacific routes and , even at it's best it is still a relatively short range a/c ( better than 737 and 757 but way shorter range than 744 and 777 variants)
Moderation in all things ... including moderation ;-)

The 762ER has a 6,600nm maximum range so she could do
DEN- NRT, in theory (winds in one direction might hurt that, though).
And the 763ER has a 6,105nm maximum range, so she could do SEA- NRT, for example.
However, in three class config they're a little light on passenger load, and airlines like UA use the 777s to tool around Asia between runs to and from the US.
When UA offered around-the-world service in 1995, a 763ER did at least the DEL- LHR portion. She could have done HKG-DEL, LHR- JFK and JFK- LAX, as well. They'd only have needed the 744 for LAX- HKG.

I think the reason
AC have so many 767s cross the pacific is a shortage of newer birds with the range needed. It will be nice to see the new metal in AC colours. I still don't beleive WestJet flies a 737 to Hawaii from YVR.
