ETA: It might be possible to score a JL flight number on DFW-NRT. I know code shares aren't supposed to work, but since PDX-LAX does, this would be worthy of further investigation.
I dont think you can use codeshare. Someone reported BA even shot down KA for flights HKG-PEK that CX codeshares with KA and KA is a full member of OW.
