Accruals:

The following accruals were estimated for YVR-LAX-SEA-PEK travel on DL metal without considering any elite status bonuses or ongoing promotions.

Conclusion

To maximize mileage accrual this fare can be routed via LAX. It’s the scenic route, but you get the extra YVR-LAX-SEA miles instead of just YVR-SEA. According to routing rules, this fare could also be routed through HNL but I was not able to find any availability for this route.
