Seatcounter showing different flight from AC.com?

In a rush to book a Oct 10 YVR-PVG flight through my agent, I didn't doublecheck what aircraft I would be flying on but simply assumed it would be a 763 based on a quick look at seatcounter. Unfortunately I just checked my actual booking on AC.com and it turns out it is going to be a 343 instead.

Any chance that seatcounter's information may be more accurate (I know it's a stretch) or will I have to change my flight to get a chance to try out the XM'd 763?

Presumably AC should know best what it's operating, but all the other CRSs show a 763. Just check closer to trip time.

I wouldn't chance my flight to a 763 in the expectation that its XMed... I think you have a 20-25% chance about now of getting an XMed aircraft.

Thanks for the help and advice. I had read such terrible reviews on the 343 that I was willing to chance it but considering my chances of an XM'd 763 are not high, I'll stick with the original plan.
