According to Flight International, China Southern Airlines may become the
first airline to use the B777 across the Pacific.  It's reported that
China Southern may lease two B777s from ILFC and inaugurate direct
service between San Francisco and Guangzhou later this year.  The flight
will have to make a technical stop in Alaska with the current medium-range

Also, China Eastern has just started using the A340-300 on their
Beijing/Shanghai-Los Angeles service.
