PR A350 North America Usage Outside of JFK/YYZ

I'm curious if PR ever switches to an A350 on their LAX/SFO/YVR route or is it pretty much exclusively used for their Eastern NA destinations?

AFAICT, SFO has always been the B777 (at least within the last year or so). Not sure about the other western airports you mentioned but it's unlikely they will deploy it there as they supposedly only have two A350s at this point.
The JFK flight sometimes is operated with the B777 which would be disappointing if one is expecting lie flats and aisle access in J.

Thank you for the info.

I know Google mentions the seats on the 777 are angle flats, but online they look like they flatten out for the most part like the older Turkish Business class seats.

How comfortable are the 777 J seats for a 14hr ride?

I have flown PRs A350 to/from London previously. Very pleasant.

Not familiar with the TK seats. It's subjective but IMO it's comfortable enough.

Thinking about this would definitely make the 777 seats less comfortable

Went ahead and booked a RT on the 777 in J. Hope the seats aren't too bad for a 14hr flight

PR is usually the cheapest business class option across the Pacific.

For me it came down to award availability. Pretty great deal using ANA miles.

yes, then the cheapest option for business class across the Pacific is mile redemption using ANA miles.
