If UA wants to capture the Japan<->Asia market, why then doesn't UA create a Japanese subsidiary who would then operate under Japanese rules and agreements ? I can understand that US airlines such as US would love to be able to capture Japan<->Asia traffic perhaps more than they want the US<->Asia traffic. (higher yields etc). Lets look as Asia as a "continent", and the USA/Canada as a continent. If Japan allows UA to carry Japanese from Japan to Indonesia for instance, will the USA allow ANA or JAL to compete in the LAX-JFK route? It is one thing to allow a foreign airline to hub at your airport to help transfer its own passengers to onwards flights, but it is another to allow a foreign airline to play in your own playing field.
