Price. AC has the most expensive discount business class fare from YYZ-HKG.

Example fare: Outbound 01-Dec-2012 Return 16-Dec-2012

AC $7,147
CX $6,648
UA $5,950
TK $5,878
LH $6,715
LX $6,216
DL $5,407
9W $6,108
KE $4,549

Why does one want to fly AC, unless one is "roped" to AC through some corporate arrangements?

The price difference of $500 more expensive than CX is "laughable". Both offering non-stop service and CX will also throw in a pair of HKG-TPE, or HKG-PVG, or HKG-PEK return business class ticket for you at no additional cost. A nice short side trip. CX's new J seat is very nice.
