thanks @Carbonman , i happened to watch Sam Chui's video that has his interview with Captain Ray Chauwdury, he was told that the pilot has three option of route, over the north pole, through Atlantic , or towards Pacific, all depends on the time of the year and how the wind is doing.

In all my experiences flying the non-stop on the A345, they have never flown the Pacific route from EWR, as they would be flying into headwind.
