I just booked a flight on AC from SFO to PEK via YVR (for the week after Christmas). I understand that this route is served by a 763. Can anyone comment on the AC service on this route? I recently flew on AC from SFO-YYZ-MUC and was happy with it. Is their Pacific service comparable? I'm wondering if there might be a few more perks since the flight is 3 hours longer.
Also, as a US citizen, I understand that I will need a visa to enter China. Do these usually get approved? I would appreciate any advice regarding this.
