How come they don't operate the 747-400 to San Fransico? Almost every other airline operates the 747-400 to San Fransico from the Pacific Rim? Are they possibly waiting to see how the load factors are?

Maybe they wanted the plane to go slower (Airbus A340 travels only Mach 0.78-0.80)
jk (just kidding)
Well maybe they assumed that would handle their expectations for the time being, Cathay Pacific has some wonderful looking Boeing 747's (i think no other 747 could look better) and it's possible that they are doing what you lead up to CX747. A340 also has a longer range, depending on the seat configuration.
