I've been flying CA from ARN to PEK and back two times now and everytime the plane has been packed with PAX. CA is currently using a Boeing 767-200ER on the route. How come they don't upgrade back to the 747-400 which the used in the past?

They used the 747 when it was a triangle route (PEK-CPH-ARN-PEK). Probably they think the route on itself does not support the aircraft like 747.

There is a HUGE difference between a 747-400 and a 767-200. But why they don't upgrade from the current 767-200? Well there are two alternatives. Either they believe a 767-200 is best suited for the route or they don't have any other aircrafts available

Remember that most of the pax are on charter priced tickets. No incentive to operate a bigger aircraft.

Yes indeed, but almost all charters to China are fully booked so I think they could use a 747 and fill it without any problem, look at TG who's operating daily 747-400 ARN-BKK, it's mostly charters there as well.
