Alespesl, you can read some of the AA trip reports in the Trip Reports Forum. Most of them get pretty detailed especially re: Pacific service.
Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!

Wow, that is not a bad price at all. Around 600 US from Halifax to Tokyo huh? Hard to get a price like that from LAX.

As far as service, you will fly Eagle ERJ135s from between YHZ and JFK, 777s to and from NRT (Y seats will have 34-35" of MRTC, if you cannot get exit row) and a 762ER LAX-JFK (also with 34" MRTC, or more if in exit row). Their F/As are nice and professional, and you have your choice between coke and pepsi (why anyone choses pepsi, I don't know why =)) and Dr. Pepper

And the F/As on the JFK-NRT and LAX-NRT legs will all be around 80 years old. NRT is the single most senior trip for JFK-based F/As, usually a minimum of 36 years seniority to hold the trip, with the exception of the 3 Japanese speakers on board.

Unlike the rest of AA's domestic system, you should get on-board meal service on LAX-JFK.

I flew the YHZ-JFK route and you can expect once you clear customs at JFK to get your bags from the claim area and then re-enter security to get to your NRT flight since YHZ isn't a pre cleared airport for US operations. You may already know this, but I didn't and it was more of a nuisance than anything else! Considering I paid $300something to get from DFW to YHZ, that's a great deal you got!
That's why we're here.

The AA trans-oceanic product is far superior to any other US airline, especially on the 777. You should have a wonderful trip. The only thing you might have difficulty with is connecting at JFK. AA's inter-terminal connections there can be a bitch sometimes, so check to see how much time you have.
