Trip is booked on Qatar

Thank you for the feedback. SAA's routing thru IAD makes a stop in Dakar, Senegal that they don't disclose until booking. Qatar is also getting raves here in Montreal.

I am travelling PDX-HKG and CX has a great J fare . The routing is PDX-YVR (AS) connecting to CX in YVR. Do I have to go through Canadian Immigration at YVR even though I am only transiting??

Take the 767-200 in J for sure. Better pitch, footrests, Bose headphones, widebody plane. The 757 in F is OK, just not as comfortable. And you score an upgrade to F on the 767 which is really nice.

Bad FA on LH in F

Yes you should report her. It makes no difference if you used US Air miles or LH miles - you dropped a lot of $$$ to earn that reward and her attitude is unacceptable.
