Don't you think UA has direct access to the AC system since the AC operated flights are codeshared with UA?
UA might have direct access to AC's inventory but there might be issues with ensuring that the booking is accepted by AC. This issue arises repeatedly with members of United's MileagePlus program booking segments on one reservation with United and other Star Alliance members, esp, on award travel. That is why UA may have to phone AC or other *A carriers in order to ensure the booking, just as reported above by YOWTraveller.
