Can anybody tell me if QF has ever serviced SFO? If they have, why was service discontinued? If they haven't.....Why not? This question has been bugging me for the last couple of days and I know somebody on here will have the answer!

Yes, Qantas used to serve San Fran. with almost every aircraft type! The last services were flown with Boeing 767-338ERs, and have included Boeing 747-38SP non-stop services to Sydney (Sydney to San Francisco is shorter than Sydney to Los Angeles!).

Unfortunately, QANTAS no longer serves YVR with their own equipment. A few years back they tried it for a short time when they lost their codeshare partner, Canadian Airlines. I guess it just didn't make much flying their own planes all the way to YVR.
I believe they fly YVR passenger to LAX and then use Alaska for the flight north. It was nice seeing the kangaroo at YVR.
I find it interesting that AC would want to fly YVR-SYD non-stop. It seems to make sense routing through HNL, so they can carry HNL and SYD passengers. How long would the YVR-SYD flight be?

Timz - non-stop flights to SFO were added at the same time as non-stop flights to SFO, and were operated using 74L's - it was basically a three days per week service to both LAX and SFO, operating on alternate days, with one day per week kept for maintenance.
