Do you mean "direct" per the definition used by airlines, or do you mean "non-stop"?

The current AC34 flight is "direct", but involves a stop in HNL and is operated by a 767-300 aircraft. The stop in HNL requires all passengers, even those in transit to Canada, to complete USA arrivals formalities including immigration/passport control and customs clearence for all checked and carry-on bags.

From 16th December 2007, AC34 will be operated by a 777-300ER aircraft and will be non-stop SYD-YVR, removing the USA immigration and customs requirements in HNL. This aircraft will have their new long-haul business class cabin.

Whoops, thanks Nelly, I didn't realise the 777 service wasn't in operation until December (I was researching fares for next April-May).
