from an airline standpoint, is there a difference on what stock a ticket is issued?
let's say i have a flight Lufthansa issued by AC, do I get a different experience from someone who booked with LH?
From my understanding, no. There might be tiny hiccups like seat assignment if you book codeshare, but for same flight number ticket stock doesn't matter.
And AC requires min spend on 014 stock to get elite status...

Return, that's base fare, after tax ~3000
That's very inexpensive business class tickets. I searched for them for hkg but often get at least $4000+ for direct. Have you seen any that's around $2500?

HKG is an expensive destination and J fare are rarely on sale, right now ac is running a ~3300 all in sale to PVG, which is 2 hours fly away from HKG.

Is there a reason why AC can't issue interline tickets in PEY?

Eg I'm flying yyz-HND (AC), HND-kul(ANA) Pen-hkg (Cx)-HKG-YyZ (AC)

TA says can't issue PEY on Interline flights over 4hrs so AC metal can book PEY but not ANA or CX portions

update: sorry just read your post again and realized you are referring to interline, then yes AC PE booking only compatible with NH M class which is standard economy.

Thanks! So this is a restriction from NH for Interline bookings? And not AC?

I think I'll have to bite the bullet and book it as it's only/most direct routing to my destinations but 8hrs in economy on a 789 on NH is going to be tough and AC PE isn't exactly that good anyways. And J is like 6k

Oh, I hear you, 8 hrs in NH 789 economy is miserable..The restriction is more from the agreement made between carriers.
Have you ever considered Chinese airlines? Did a quick search and found out MU is have ~3700 all in J fare for YYZ-PVG-KUL

Right now YYZ-ICN's public price on KE is $970 before tax, I checked 18 Apr's travel date's price history for sale on Oct 17 ~ Mar 18, and the price all fall in $900~950. So I am not very optimism for a significant price drop if KE is going to copy their last year's strategy, sorry.

i am thinking about booking through United from YYZ to HKD but stop over is at ORD. Anyone have experience connection flight there? Is 1hour and 25 minute enough to get to my gate?

From what i hear you need to grab your luggage and than go through custom and security again?

For your O/B YYZ-ORD-HKG you will clear US customs at YYZ, upon arrive ORD you just need to deplane and find your new gate, ~20min is more than enough.
For I/B HKG-ORD-YYZ you will have to clear customs after landed at ORD, pickup your luggage, recheck it, go through domestic security checkpoint and find your gate back to YYZ. If you don't have Nexus/Global Entry I would suggest at least leave 2.5 hrs connecting time.
